art & about with naomi mccleary

January 7 to five days a week and from 1.00 to 6.00 pm. A visit to the house that was home to Colin McCahon and his

family during the

Other works from the Portage Ceramic Awards, at Te Uru until February 8.

1950s is a fascinating experience of both a great artist’s work and a glimpse into the social history of that period. It takes support from a wide range of sources to keep an institution such as this going. Creative New Zealand provides stipends for the artists and other funding bodies and the local board make annual grants to assist with operational costs. The ASB Community Trust

and The Trusts Community Foundation (TTCF) are two of the main supporters in this regard. TTCF is a local (as in West Auckland) granting body and a major funder of the new Te Uru gallery. The next residency at McCahon House will be held by Daniel Malone

(pictured right). Born in Greymouth and currently based in Warsaw, Poland, he holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Elam School of Fine

Arts, University

Auckland. He has fond memories of the Titirangi

area, having spent his early adult years holidaying at Little Huia. Daniel works with all media including performance, sculpture, video, sound, painting, photography, graphic design, and ceramics. He works with spaces and objects to evoke situations that explore concepts of cultural identity and behaviour that provoke philosophical and political questions.

His work has been included in numerous international exhibitions including Lodz Biennial, Turbulence: the 3rd Auckland Triennial, the 2006 Singapore Biennale, The South Project’s TRANS VERSA: Conversing Across the South in Santiago, World Famous In New Zealand (in Canberra Contemporary Art Space), and the 2004 Biennale of Sydney. Of interest is a connection to Lopdell House Gallery in 2001 when he

authored Black Hole, a small publication for a group exhibition called Black Eye. His 2014/15 residency will be followed by an exhibition at Te Uru.

Finally, there couldn’t be a better time to ‘hitch your wagon to a star’ and become a friend of the Lopdell House Society and/or the McCahon House Trust. Both institutions offer special events and benefits – and the warm rosy glow that comes with supporting the arts in your area.
