Thirty years of work by Danne-
virke ceramic artist Ann
Verdcourt has been brought
together for the first time in a
new exhibition at Whangarei
Ceramics: Ann Verdcourt A
Survey looks at her work
through three themes which
have occupied Verdcourt
conversations with artists, still
life and play, museum director
Scott Pothan says.
Born in Luton, England in
1934, hats and World War Two
featured strongly in Ann
Verdcourt's childhood and the
influence of both can still be
seen now threaded through her
Combined with these early
influences is the rigour of seven
years of study at Luton and
Hornsey Schools of Art, an
intense interest in art history,
and the dislocation of living and
working in New Zealand, where
London's Victoria and Albert
Museum is a distant dream.
The exhibition -- jointly devel-
oped by Te Manawa Museums
Trust, Palmerston North, and
the Sarjeant Gallery, Wanganui
-- opens January 31 and runs
until March 27.
Help needed for
Mac's new plan
New project: George 'Mac'
He's made literally thou-
sands of toys and other
hand-crafted items in his
home workshop and then
distributed them to the
needy in Whangarei.
Now Mac MacLucas
has a new project on the
go.The energetic 81-year-
old -- who received a
Kiwibank Local Heroes
medal as part of the
inaugural New Zea-
lander of the Year
Awards last year -- wants
to create glass etchings
of native New Zealand
birds to raise funds to
help children with cancer
Mac needs help for the
project, however. He's
hoping to find three
people to help him create
the etchings and in
return acquire a new
skill along the way, and
free of charge.
Anyone interested will
need to cover the cost of
a few frames.
Mac will provide all
Mac says Dremel has
donated the tools which
will help reduce the cost.
Mac will also be look-
ing for help in locating
more silicon carbide tips.
