Text:Amateur and professional artists are being sought to take part in the second Under the Rainbow art exhibition in the capital, which will raise funds for volunteer event producing group Out Wellington. Out Wellington produces annual fair day Out in the Square, along with dance parties such as Glitter. The Under the Rainbow exhibition features donated artworks by gay, bi, lesbian and trans artists. Works range from sketches to paintings to collage to photography, and anything in-between. The last exhibition raised around $3,000 for Out in the Square. Out Wellington Chairperson Andy Boreham, who is producing the event, says the group are excited and eager to chat with artists who might be keen to donate a work or two. “Our first exhibition featured work from amateurs and professionals, and we show-cased a number of pieces that ranged from sketches to paintings to photographs to comics,” he says. “We’re really excited to put on another exhibition and are keen to hear from anyone who considers themselves a queer artist.” Boreham says the event is a great way for artists to showcase their work and to meet other artists and art lovers in the community. “Under the Rainbow runs for a whole week, which means the art featured is viewed by many people — last time every piece found a new home.” Anyone who is willing to donate work is asked to contact Andy Boreham ( for details. The exhibition will launch with an opening event on Monday 7 May from 6PM at Cuba St's Thistle Gallery, and all are welcome. It will close with a final auction on Saturday 12 May from 8PM. Nibbles and bubbly will be provided at each event. staff - 31st January 2012
