Join two celebrated New Zealand artists for an evening of “performance art”. Dick Frizzell and Richard Adams will paint to a backdrop of live jazz played by The Gavin Adams Quartet (Nigel Gavin, Richard Adams, Jeff Sinnott and Dominic Stayne), each completing a one-off work of art to be auctioned off on the night – profits to support the Southern Lakes Arts Festival Trust.
Dick Frizzell, MNZM is a celebrated contemporary artist who mines his subject matter from the fabric of everyday life – cartoons, corporate branding, Kiwiana – expressed in paintings, lithographs and sculpture.
Richard Adams is an Auckland-based abstract artist involved in a diverse range of pursuits, including film, music, poetry and painting, and as violinist/vocalist with the Nairobi Trio.
Two numbered ‘Design #1’ Revology chairs (GOLD winner, Melbourne Design Awards), inspired by the classic and elegant Bistrot chair and made from 96% recyclable materials, will also be auctioned.
Free welcome drink and nibbles, followed by a cash bar.
