Partnership success Runner-up: The Upper Hutt i-SITE and Staglands expo stand. A partnership between Upper Hutt i-SITE Visitor Centre and Staglands Wildlife Reserve resulted in their stand at this year's Wellington Conference and Events Expo held at the TSB Arena last week being voted runner-up out of 92 stands at the expo. The team from the i-SITE welcomed staff from Staglands Wildlife Reserve to work along- side them and it proved invaluable with many contacts made. The attraction of their live rabbits and chicks added to usual high demand forblueberry fudge offered by Bluebank. All signs indicated that the market is well on the way to recovery and that meetings, client functions, and conferences again will be back on the agenda, says Upper Hutt business liaison man- ager Paul Lambert. All conference venues in Upper Hutt were promoted by staff on the day. Attendees through the expo exceeded 400, so it was a great opportunity to gain more valuable prospects and potential bookings for venues as well as networking with other exhibitors.'' Fiona Tunnicliffe artist in feature at Expressions Exhibition piece: Alice and the Red Queen by Fiona Tunnicliffe. What do pottery, printing and patchwork have in common? If you are ceramic artist Fiona Tunnicliffe then that is what your artworks are made of. Regal horses, quirky cats and pigs and a rather rotund rhino make up the mix of creatures on display in the Vector Gallery at Expressions. Tunnicliffe has been a self- employed potter for 25 years, exhibiting widely in New Zealand. She has won the premier award at the Waikato Society of Potters twice and at the Thames Art Society summer exhibition, and been accepted into major exhibitions including the Portage Ceramics award and New Zealand Society of Potters Exhibitions. Tunnicliffe runs night classes from home during the term and regularly teaches weekend workshops around New Zealand. She has finished teaching the sculpture module for Otago Poly- technic diploma in ceramic arts. Tunnicliffe was the ceramic sculpture tutor for the 2010 Whangarei Quarry Summer Do and her latest sculpture exhi- bition was Animalia'' at the Taupo Art Gallery in November. Tunnicliffe's ceramic pieces have been created with such skill and confidence and she has captured the character and spirit of these animals perfectly,'' says Rebecca Pubben from Expressions. The exhibition finishes on August 14.
