Art in a Day - Sat 20 Feb
The Auckland "Art in a Day" competition had local artists painting scenes from various locations all over the city. Professional artist Ken Garrett chose the Roman temple in Grafton. The artists had from 8-4 pm to complete their paintings, and then needed to deliver them by 5 pm closing, so they were all in a rush a bit like the Amazing Race. Ken did a fantastic job of capturing the mystery of Ancient Rome, set in a distant South Seas island.
