Hunt for top cafe The search is on to find the country's best cafe in the inaugural New Zealand Cafe of the Year competition.

Fifteen finalists will be chosen on the basis of the most votes gained in our region -- upper North Island -- with three finalists selected.

Eye spy: Kim Groeneveld used materials including recycled wood for Eye See You. Great art is being served on a plate for the Quarry Arts Centre. The community art centre is running its third annual Great Plate auction, with proceeds this year going to the building of a new art stu- dio. The innovative exhibition starts with 100 blank cer- amic plates made by a local potter. The plates are given to 100 hand-selected artists to use in an artwork in any way they like -- as a canvas, back- drop, sculptural component, hung on a wall, freestanding or suspended. Arts co-ordinator Andrea Beazley says the artists donate their time, and there are no rules or limitations. We love this exhibition, it is incredible to see what 100 artists can do with the same starting point, it is an amaz- ing display of creativity, she says. The one-of-a-kind plates are being displayed at the Quarry Arts Centre s new Yvonne Rust Gallery and auctioned on Trade Me until this Thursday, August 9. All proceeds go to the Northland Craft Trust, the charitable organisation which directs the Quarry Arts Centre. Manager Claire Nicholls says this year funds will go towards a new artist studio on site. In many ways this exhi- bition is about artists sup- porting artists. The time and creative talents of the people who contribute to the Great Plate and the people who purchase them are support- ing an artist who will one day pursue their practice from the studio we build, she says. This year a Great Plate People s Choice Award is being introduced. During the exhibition vis- itors will be asked to vote for their favourite Great Plate. The artist with the most votes will be awarded a $100 Quarry Arts Centre gift voucher which can be used on anything from art sup- plies to enrolment in a work- shop. The Quarry Arts Centre is an active partner in the Northland creative com- munity, Claire says. Its mis- sion is Nurturing the cre- ative spirit of Northland . Two Kay tune up for jazz festival Two Kay: Jimmy Kay on guitar and Gracie-Rose on vocals warm up at the Whangarei Growers' Market for the Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues Festival. Sibling rivalry will be pushed aside this weekend for an act at the Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues Festival. Whangarei brother-and-sister act Two Kay will be taking to the stage for the second year in a row. The band was formed as a four-piece for the 2011 festival and has now reformed as a duo with Gracie-Rose Kay, 19, as lead vocalist and brother Jimmy, 15, on lead guitar. Two Kay will play a mixture of blues and rock-inspired covers. Gracie-Rose is now one of just 25 students accepted by Auck- land University to do a bachelor of performing arts, majoring in acting. But she still finds time to practise with her brother during university breaks and over sum- mer the two busked at the Whangarei Growers Market. Gracie-Rose was twice named best female artist for her vocals at the Smokefree Rockquest Northland finals. Jimmy, 15, is showing great skill on the guitar. The Whangarei Boys High School student won the 2011 Pat Shields Award for junior musi- cian of the year. Two Kay will play at a variety of venues around Paihia for the Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues Festival, which runs August 10 to 12. The festival offers more than 150 hours of live music with top acts from New Zealand and Australia performing at six ven- ues, plus loads of free street music on Saturday and Sunday and jazz on the Kawakawa steam train.
