CHINESE NEW YEAR
Parnell – Year of the Monkey Celebrations
2016 is the Year of the Monkey and Parnell Inc. has created a unique exhibition to honour Chinese New Year.
28 of New Zealand’s local and internationally recognised artists and celebrities have added their creative touches and artistic flair to a monkey sculpture! Their inspirations in creating their monkey tell a story in itself as each piece has taken on it’s own personality. Art galleries, jewellery stores and décor outlets along Parnell Road will be exhibiting the colourful, often quirky pieces from February 6 to 21. These will then be auctioned of in support of The Starship Foundation.
Jonathan Grant Galleries are contributing two monkeys – painted by iconic New Zealand artist Piera McArthur – to the event. We invite you to stop by the Gallery to take a look!
The main monkey ‘sanctuary’ will be along Parnell Road between 56-536 Parnell Road, with a ‘mini sanctuary’ at 99-115 The Strand.
