Brick Bay Sculpture Trail is celebrating this popular pastime. Artists Rachel Walters and Layla Rudneva-Mackay created A Hut of One's Own, the temporary site-specific Artist Project for 2011. They found inviting spots on the trail and built huts and shelters visitors can interact with. These huts will reference ideas around child's play, temporary habitation, make-shift archi- tecture, sheltering and taking time out. The shelters can be seen until March 31. The trail is open 10am to 5pm daily, with the last trail entry at 4pm. Adults $12, seniors $10, students $10, under-fives free. Visit www. brickbaysculpture. co.nz for more information. Kaipara Coast Sculpture Gardens 2011 exhibition has a number of interesting and fun exhibits. More than 40 local artists have exhibited 70 pieces. People of all ages can enjoy the trail, a 1km walk set in a variety of garden settings. Sculpture gardens owners David and Geraldine Bayly, and curator Sally Lush, have involved local artists wherever possible, and encouraged schools to participate. Displays have come from Stella Maris School in Silverdale, Orewa College Engineering Department, Gumboots Early Learning Centre in Waimauku, Kaukapakapa Pre- School, Kaukapakapa Playcentre and Sunny Days Early Childhood Centre in Helensville. Other attractions in the area include Omeru Reserve, just north of the gardens, which has a short walk, plus waterfalls. The Kaipara Coast Sculpture Gardens is open every day at 1481 Kaipara Coast Highway, 4km north of Kaukapakapa Village. Visit www. sculpturegardens. co.nz for more information. Affordable, one-off work at annual show Love nature: Jade River Arts Group artists share a love of nature, which comes through in their work. Pictured, Paradise Found, a silk painting by Doris Riederer of Warkworth. Capturing the beauty of nature in a range of media is what the Jade River Arts Group does best. The group has its fourth annual exhibition tomorrow and Saturday at the Old Masonic Hall in Warkworth. Artworks on show in- clude native birds crafted from clay, some of which can even sing -- they are ocarina flutes. The finish of the birds depends on the firing method. Wood firing produces a smooth, burnished work, while raku firing produces shimmering colours. For the blokes there will be bronze whalers, tuna, kahawai, and mackerel shaped from clay and combined with driftwood and metal. Paintings include some on shiny silk fabric, and others are contem- porary mixed media pieces on canvas with built-up structures incorporating fossils, shells and sea-tumbled marble pebbles. Organisers say it s a good opportunity to find local and affordable one- off artwork. Exhibiting artists at the Jade River Exhibition are Thel Munro, Vivienne Pater- son, Doris Riederer and Anne Sutherland. The exhibition is open from 9am to 5pm. Lazy days Picnic celebration: About 130 Sandspit Yacht Club members gathered in the grounds of Mansion House, Kawau Island, to celebrate 50 years since the establishment of their club. The weather was superb, ensuring the picnic was very relaxing and enjoyable with music by local band Blind Willie Motel. An earlier celebration was held in May last year with a formal dinner and dance in marquees at the yacht club premises.
