During her short stay in South of France early November, Florence accepted the invitation from SKEMA business School students in Sophia Antipolis, near Nice to do a one day workshop. It was great to see so much enthusiasm and passion for art coming from students who study mainly business and finance. And also quite impressive to see some very creative piece of art done by these students during the workshop. These guys rock!

A big thanks to all of you who were able to attend the opening of Florence’s exhibition on Friday. It was an awesome event and it was great to having so many people attending.
We were particularly honoured to have the Honourable Thierry MARIANI former Minister and member of the French Parliament representing the French overseas attending the event during his short visit to New Zealand.
If you couldn’t make it on Friday, it not a problem, as Florence and I will be pleased to welcome you on Wednesday 20th of august from 6.00 pm to 8.00pm at Railway Street Studio – 8, Railway street in New market for a private viewing.
The great news is that not only you will see some awesome artworks, but the Jazzband “Pardon My French” will perform some jazz standards in French throughout the evening. Feel free to come along with friends and family
The Exhibition and Sale event runs over 3 days and takes place in our school hall which is completely transformed into a world class gallery for these 3 days.
The first opportunity to view over 90 emerging and well known New Zealand artists is on our opening gala night – Friday the 6th of June from 7-9.30pm. The gala night is an exclusive event for ticket holders only. Wine and canapes are served over the 2 and 1/2 hour opening night and as expected a number of highly sought after pieces of art sell on the opening night. While the tickets are limited they can be purchased, for only $40, by calling in to see the wonderful office team at Kohia Terrace School (3 Kohia Terrace, Epsom) or by phoning 09 630 4525.
The athmosphere and opportunity to mix and mingle with many of the exhibiting artists is a fantastic experience and one not to be missed. Whether you are an art lover, parent or simply a supporter of the school you are guaranteed a great night.
The Exhibition and Sale is also open over Saturday 7th, 10.30am – 5pm and Sunday 8th, 10.30am – 3pm. No ticket is required for these days, entry is free however there is a donation box because even a gold coin donation helps us towards our fundraising goal. You are welcome to bring your children on the weekend to view and purchase art works by these talented artists.
