16 NZ artists were invited to choose one or two poems, written during Ruth Arnison's Olveston residency, as inspiration for a new artwork. The resulting 26 artworks made up the exhibition PoARTry@Olveston which opened on August 7th in the Drying Room Gallery, in Olveston Historic Home, Dunedin.

On the final day of the exhibition Janet de Wagt will be chatting to local artists Anna Reid, Jenny Longstaff, Kiri Mitchell, Michael Schouten, Pauline Bellamy, Rob Piggott and Tracy Jones about their exhibition work, the poem they chose to respond to, and more...
