This month our First Thursday Exhibition Group will visit The New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts to view the Parkin Drawing Prize, New Zealand’s premier award for drawing. It promotes drawing in all it’s forms – as discovery, a testing of ideas and decision making. Challenges we also face in designing for stitching using needle and thread. Find more details at parkinprize.org.nz

Meet: At Arabica Cafe, 1 Grey Street at 12.00 noon.
Thence The Academy at 1.00pm.
