Installing The Burns Memorial Exhibition 2015

The Burns Memorial Exhibition 2015

Oh my goodness the children in North Otago have been busy making art lately! In the last few days the back room and top galleries have been getting full of work coming in for the Burns Memorial Exhibition-opening 12 September. It is so exciting and a little bit daunting seeing it all come in and figuring out how it will be hung and displayed. We are lucky to have teachers who value the arts and do such amazing work with their classes. Making Art can be a mucky business and is not always an easy thing to squeeze into a busy day!‘Art is not a luxury. In this day and age, art in all its forms is a pathway back to sanity. I repeat: Art is not a luxury, but a necessity for complete living.’ George Burns

It is certainly looking like it will be another fantastic display with a few Alices, Cheshire cats, lots of paper mache sculptures and a diverse array of amazing and colourful art.

Make sure you come in to see the 45th annual when it is installed, and be sure when you do to spend some time in the new wonderlab.
