Artwork is always a deeply personal state- ment for Muriwai resi- dent Gaylene Earl. It reflects her love of nature and passion for the land, especially liv- ing on an expansive rural block overlooking Goldie Bush. Gaylene says the environment sustains her creativity. She is a campaigner for ecology and man s impact on the natural world and her art school and painting classes became a catalyst for expressing her views on nature. Her Landscape Sub- division Series in 2007 is a particularly powerful example, incorporating a series of paintings in montage grid format to represent Maori and col- onial settlement, the use and abuse of the land, the destruction of native vegetation, various environmental impacts and their consequences Gaylene s most recent work this year -- Skyscape Contemplation Series -- is more con- templative and reflec- tive, showing the sky and its relationship to the landscape in a series of stacks or slides depicting different cloud formations and weather patterns. They were inspired by her 33-day walk along the Camino Santiago Pilgrim trail in Northern Spain and draw the viewer in to appear one way initially, but after a while, with contem- plation they change . Her work appears in the Muriwai Arts Trail from November 20 to 21 at the main exhibition at Houghtons Bush Camp. Her open studio, as part of the trail, also features more of her work in various stages of progress. Gaylene is looking forward to con- necting with the com- munity along with celebrating the unique west coast environment. Books a winner Read all about it. The successful book fair hosted by the Huapai Kumeu Lions members has raised more than $5000. Some of the proceeds will go towards the Kumeu Band for their prac- tice hall rebuilding project. The quantity and quality of the donated books was outstanding and we received very fav- ourable comments from book-lovers, says Lions presi- dent Gary Moss. More than 4000 books of all kinds were sold for $2 or less. The club s next fundraiser will sup- port the NZ Foun- dation for the Blind s project to replace their cass- ette-based Talking Books with CD/ DVD digital devices at $900 a unit. The Lions will be taking a collection at the Kumeu Christmas parade. ARTS TRAIL Visitors to this year s Muriwai Arts Trail have more artworks and styles to savour.
