Art’n’Tartan returns

The popular wearable art show, Art’n’Tartan, will take place this month in the Waipu Celtic Barn.
The new show will be under the direction of Waipu Artist Annie Newall, in collaboration with dance and performing arts teacher Jayden Rudolph. Although still paying homage to Waipu’s Celtic roots, this year’s show will feature a kaleidoscope of contemporary themes with specially designed scenery, props and lighting. 
New creative categories will enhance the new look. They include Scottish Surreal, which has inspired many artists to create an array of bizarre and beautiful costumes. In the children’s mask section, the audience can look forward to a parade of glow-in-the-dark storybook creatures straight from the youngsters’ lively imagination.
Performances take place at 8pm on July 20 and 2pm and 8pm on July 21. Tickets are available from the Waipu Museum or
