“Asni the Harper gave a pledoyer for her instrument that many listeners will remember for a long while as a concert of fragile, intimate aura and impressive depth.”

    Please join me for the Grand Opening of my exhibition "Fantastic Journeys - Paintings inpired by Ursula Le Guin"!

 ************ The opening will take place on Tuesday, 17 August 2010 from 6 pm to 9 pm, at Thistle Hall in Wellington - Cuba St corner Arthur St.

 *********** Expect dragons, wizards and magic! Plus, delicious finger food, and a harp music performance by Asni the Harper (my musical alter ego) - including the world premiere of a new piece, "Only in Silence" - inspired, just like the paintings, by a text by the great old lady of American fantasy and science fiction, Ursula Le Guin.

 ********************* If you cannot join me for the opening, the show will be open from 17 to 22 August, Tuesday to Saturday 11 am - 8 pm and Sunday 11 am - 6 pm. There will be harp music performances every day at 12.30 pm and 6 pm (Sunday 5.30 pm) - so come and join me for a relaxing half hour in your lunch break, or after work!

 ********************* The show presents the result of a year and a half of work, and an even longer, often difficult period of transition from being a full time musician, to developing my confidence and my painting skills to present these works to the public. It is an important milestone for me as an artist. Please join me in celebrating this occasion. *********************** More information can be found on my website, conceptart.asni.net ********************* Prints of the artwork, and CDs will be for sale during the show.
