Whitireia New Zealand and Finc Dining Room are proud to present the annual Jewellers of Whitireia contemporary jewellery fundraiser auction and exhibition. The live auction will be held on Thursday 8 November at Finc, 122 Wakefield Street, starting at 6.30pm sharp. An exhibition of the work to be auctioned will be held at Finc from 23 October. Works donated by leading jewellers with an international reputation will be auctioned alongside current student and recent graduate works.
Donating jewellers include Ted Noten, Manon van Kouswijk, Lisa Walker, Karl Fritsch, Peter Deckers, Renee Bevan, Matthew McIntyre Wilson, Neke Moa and Owen Mapp. Kim Hill will once again be holding the gavel. Funds raised from the auction will be used to produce the annual student jewellery catalogue. This high-end catalogue is distributed worldwide and is now eagerly anticipated by public and private galleries, and other institutions and individuals with a passion for cutting-edge contemporary jewellery.
Works will be on display at Finc for the two weeks leading up to the auction, giving people plenty of opportunity for advance viewing of the work, or can be viewed at www.jewelsofwhitireia.wordpress.com This event is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to obtain high quality, one-off works at affordable prices, and above all promises to be an extremely fun night out!
