Entries are open for the awards, the only contemporary art prize in New Zealand with ecology at its core. When the event was started 10 years ago it reflected an academic interest in water bodies which resulted in looking to the then seriously polluted Tamaki Estuary. Current curator Balamohan Shingade says originally paintings were mainly of the estuary, but over the years more innovative and experimental thoughtful work has been submitted. “ The paintings have become less didactic and more engaged,” he says. “ This year is a big milestone and the most important thing is that it’s open to everyone. This event has a wide focus attracting diverse interpretations and different levels of abilities.” One of the country’s foremost contemporary art critics, Jon Bywater, will judge the entries. Mr Shingade says he has a keen interest in ecology. “A lot of his work is about place – New Zealand’s identity and how the ecology fits in.” To celebrate the awards anniversary Uxbridge is planning a variety of public events in August. The arts and culture centre will collaborate with the Tamaki Estuary Protection Society for a Tamaki Estuary clean-up day. An exclusive judges’ tour of the exhibition will be held and a botanical illustration class of endangered estuarine plants will be held in collaboration with the Auckland Botanic Gardens. With a total prize pool of $8300 the competition aims to connect with artists at the grass roots level to contemporary professionals. “Often in the past,” Mr Shingade says, “people just launching their careers have won the prizes and some have gone on to become prolific artists.” The new Malcolm Smith Gallery, he says, is a space that professional artists envy. “Some with long careers want to show here. It’s built in keeping, including white cube aesthetics that present flexible space for the artists. It’s neutral so the artist can manipulate the space.” art award Estuary art milestone classics Passion and soul music Manukau Symphony Orchestra has a musical journey in store for concert-goers. Conductor Professor Uwe Grodd leads the June concert which starts with the gypsy passion of Bizet’s Carmen, through Lalo’s sparkling Symphonie Espagnole and finishes with Mendelssohn’s spiritually uplifting Fifth Symphony. Carmen is one of the best loved of all operas, from the dark Overture to the Seguidilla through to the show-stopping Toreador aria. Making a welcome comeback is gifted young violinist Benedict Lim as soloist in Lalo’s Symphonie Espagnole. The Manukau Symphony Orchestra presents its concert, Passion and Soul, at 7.30pm on June 25 at the Vodafone Events Centre. WIN TICKETS The Times has four double passes to give away.
