Experience the colours of Aotearoa

The Team from Resene ColorShop Kilbirnie

Resene is proud to be supporting the 17th annual NZ Art Show - this year with a twist! More than 150 emerging contemporary artists are set to inspire any art collector in this dynamic virtual exhibition.

This new initiative is the brainchild of the show as it embraces the opportunity to continue to support some of NZ’s hottest new artists on the art scene despite the limitations of Covid-19 lockdown.

All artists have been selected by a panel of experts, promising quality and talent deserved of any collection. Art lovers can be assured that they can purchase with confidence, liaising directly with the artists.

Visitors can explore new artworks by some of the show’s favourite and most successful artists including Jane Blackmore, Runa + Holly, Tanya Blong, Joel Hart and Nikki Corbishley while discovering the hottest and newest artists on the NZ Arts scene. Glass works by the talented Richard Landers (a crowd favourite at last year’s show) also feature, alongside contemporary photographic works, exquisite and traditional watercolours, gorgeous florals, and artworks that provoke thought and conversation.


Go to artshow.co.nz where you can browse and purchase hundreds of original artworks all from the comfort of your own home from May 1st. Show your support and help keep the arts alive and active in NZ!

How high do we want Wellington to go?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

The National Policy Statement on Urban Development released by the Government allows building heights of at least 6 storeys within walkable catchments of the city centre and metropolitan.

The Wellington City Council has proposed that in our most central suburb, Te Aro, we have a “minimum building height of at least 6 storeys” and a “maximum permitted building height to at least 10 storeys.”

In Wellington a lack of available land for development is driving the change towards higher buildings. That could eventually see Te Aro transform from an original working class suburb to a suburb of tower blocks. What do you think?

The Mt Vic tunnel, a long road to nowhere

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Politicians have been been talking about a second Mt Victoria tunnel since the 1950s.
A second tunnel is a key component in Lets Gets Wellington Moving, although progress on that is at a snail's pace.
This week the Green Party came up with a new idea - two new additional tunnels. The Greens would not block the proposed car tunnel but would like to see two more built.
One would be a dedicated walking and cycling tunnel parallel to the existing Mt Victoria car tunnel, the second would be a light rail tunnel in Newtown, near Wellington Zoo.

What do you think?
