Work created by a bunch of Whakatipu artists — and some artists impersonators — will go on display at Arrowtown’s Lakes District Museum from tomorrow in the ‘30 x 30 Revisited’ exhibition.

Held in conjunction with the Arrowtown Creative Arts Society, the exhibition sees some invited guests, along with community artists, create a work for sale — the only requirement is it must measure 30×30 cm.

Included in the 90-odd artists involved are celebrity chef and entrepreneur Nadia Lim, Sir Michael Hill, Christine Lady Hill, winemakers Greg Hay and Grant Taylor, Wellington’s Ruby Jones, who came to international attention with her artwork of two women embracing, inspired by
the March, 2019 Mosque attack in Christchurch, and Mountain Scene’s chief news hound Philip ‘Scoop’ Chandler.

The exhibition, which runs from Saturday till January 29, doubles as a fundraiser to complete the museum’s $3.5 million restoration, with all works up for sale, some via silent auction.
