Text:The Auckland Pride event announcements are starting to roll in. Rainbow Youth is leading the charge, calling for submissions for an art auction it will run as part of Auckland Pride 2014, ‘Old, New, Borrowed, Blue’. The Auckland glbti youth support group wants submissions from all generations, across all artistic disciplines and at all skill levels and from anyone, whether amateur or professional. The one rule is that the pieces be themed around the idea of ‘identity’. “It could be a painting, a photograph, a sculpture, a print, a series of works, or even a zine,” Rainbow Youth says. “The event and art submissions are open to all.” The exhibition will be held from 13-15 February at Artstation in Ponsonby and the pieces will be sold via silent auction. All proceeds will go to support Rainbow Youth. “Rainbow Youth hopes this event will be a great opportunity for its artistic members and supporters, and encourages prompt submission, as there is limited space for artworks,” it says. The organisation will also run an Intergenerational Panel in as part of the opening of the auction. If you are interested in submitting artwork contact to register. All accepted pieces are to be completed and delivered to the Rainbow Youth drop-in centre by Wednesday the 5th of February. staff - 19th December 2013
