Free coffee and dessert afterwards. Pinehaven arts festival Here Comes the Sun II:ByBee Doughty-Pratt, guest artist at this year's Pinehaven Art and Craft Exhibition, September 2 to 5. Her works are so popular the last exhibition she had sold out, so guest artist Bee Doughty-Pratt has been work- ing hard to produce more of her stunning abstracts ready for the 41st Pinehaven Art and Craft Exhibition which opens at the Pinehaven School Hall on Friday, September 2, at 7pm. This year the annual show has been moved forward a week earlier than published in the Upper Hutt City com- munity calendar to avoid a clash with the opening night of the Rugby World Cup. Doughty-Pratt is an abstract artist working in oils, using vibrant earthy hues to stunning effect. Her preference is to work intuitively in layers on some- times very textured canvas and board, creating a depth and interest to her large con- temporary works. She gains much inspiration painting from her studio shed on the banks of the Otaki River -- often with more than one canvas on the go at the same time. Doughty-Pratt s talent and enthusiasm has attracted a wide following, as evidenced by her last successful show, and her works can be found in galleries throughout the North Island. She has exhibitions regularly and has her own website. As guest artist, she heads a range of exciting new exhibitors this year across all the exhibition genres -- art, craft, pottery, jewellery, textiles, leather, wood and metalwork. One new feature is a range of locally hand-made children s dresses and there is more emphasis on smaller items at pocket-money prices so the children can fully participate. The Pinehaven Art and Craft Exhibition is arguably the longest-running school fundraiser of its kind in the country, but more than that it is a celebration of the varied talents of the local community and an example to the students of what they can achieve, and it has a proud and growing heritage and wide community support. Included among exhibitors is Dorothy Ewart, the sole- surviving exhibitor of the first exhibition held in a small classroom at the school in 1970. A cafe is also in operation throughout the festival week- end, with fare provided by the popular Whitemans Valley cafe The Short Straw. The 41st Pinehaven Art and Craft Exhibition begins on Friday, September 2, 7pm till 10pm, with a wine and cheese night and live band Sally the Cat. Entry is $5. Saturday hours are 9am till 6pm and Sunday 9am till 3pm. Weekend entry is a gold coin donation for adults, chil- dren free. Aiming for Friday: The Tommy Guns who return to the Upper Hutt Cossie Club on Friday at 8pm in the sports bar.
