Behind her is an 18th century French walnut armoire. It was just like you see on tele- vision, with valuable pieces dis- covered when St Mary s Anglican Church held its antiques roadshow last year. Now the church is holding another this Saturday, from 10am till 4pm in the church in Terminus St, with valuations provided by Carolyn Watkins of Carolyn Joy Watkins Antiques, Upper Hutt; Tim Edwards of Excellent Antiques; and Allen Jenkins of Big Al s Camera Shop in Miramar. While the antique china and pottery keeps its value and is a very good investment, there is no reason why you can t mix the old with the new to form a collection, says guest appraiser Ms Watkins. You can put the old on the wall -- like the large spode meat ashets [platters], while smaller items like mugs and teacups can be brought out for use. Blue and white china became popular in the 1700s. She said it was still highly col- lectible and was sought after by collectors. Ms Watkins is back for a second year at the roadshow and said people brought in some fascinat- ing pieces last year for the panel to appraise. People were going out with big smiles on their faces -- it was a great day. The popular St Mary s cafe will be open from noon. Charges are $10 per item, $20 for two and $25 for a maximum of three. To book a time, phone 528 7822. Weekend line- up: Mojo, who will entertain on Friday night at the Upper Hutt Cossie Club. Dr Feelgood per- form on Satur- day night. An illustrative day at the Mount Marua Gallery Illustrator on hand: Harriett Bailey will be autographing this book she illustrated for Kyle Mewburn. As part of the latest series of exhibitions at Expressions, Mount Marua Gallery is hosting A New Page -- Emerging Children s Book Illustrators. This exhibition features the work of nine talented illustrators at the beginning of their careers. Exhibitors are all finalists in the Storylines Gavin Bishop Award, an award set up to encourage the publication of quality picture books from New Zealand illustrators. This biennial award has been established to support New Zealand s emerging illustrators, with the winner receiving mentoring and support from cel- ebrated children s author and illustrator Gavin Bishop and an offer of publication by Random House New Zealand Ltd. Winner of the 2010 Storylines Gavin Bishop Award Harriet Bailey will have work on dis- play. Bailey has gone on to illus- trate her first children s book Hester and Lester by Kyle Mewburn and acknowledges the mentoring she received as win- ner of this award. Bailey has a particular inter- est in children s picture books. At college she studied paint- ing and printmaking followed by two years at Elam School of Fine Arts in Auckland which she left to study illustration at Christ- church School of Art and Design -- graduating with a diploma in visual communications in 1997. Working as a graphic designer in Wellington she is now free- lancing and rediscovering her passion for illustrating. Bailey is particularly interested in books where individualism is cel- ebrated and the story concludes on a very satisfying note. These days I am freelancing and rediscovering my passion for illustration. I use a range of media; I particularly like expressive marks, real paint, sensitive colour, layering in photoshop and going-over-the- lines . A long time fan of children s picture books, I find inspiration for drawing from my youngest friends and the fresh, new world they inhabit, Bailey says. She will be at Expressions on Wednesday, July 20, to run a fun activity based on the theme of her first illustrated book, Hester and Lester. Children aged from 4 to 12 are welcome to come and go between 10.30am and 2.30pm where they will create a scene from this book, then decorate it with their own individual characters to produce a large mural to be dis- played in the gallery. Copies of Hester and Lester will be on sale and Bailey will be happy to sign your copy. Bookings can be made on 527 2168.
