Devonport artists help raise funds for refugee resettlement Newly arrived refugees will get a leg up with the help of five Devonport artists in the local exhibition Where Shall we Call Home? Tina Frantzen, Jocelyn Friis, Julie Irving, Holly Sanford and Nancy Synnestvedt are among 50 Auckland artists who each donated a piece of work to the Art for Change fundraiser to help refugees resettle in Auckland. Each of them has put their own artistic slant on the refugee crisis. Frantzen was moved to be part of the show by the refugees’ courage and determination to leave their homes for the unknown. “As generous-hearted Kiwis we are in a position to offer refugees a new home,” she says. Friis says: “The current refugee situation is heartbreaking and has left me asking the question ‘What can I do to make a difference?’” Long-time glass and window artist Sanford has created two large perspex works for the show, which are based on carpets and textiles from around the world. Synnestvedt’s painting Travelling Light reflects on the different meaning the phrase has for travellers and refugees. All funds raised will go the Red Cross Pathways to Resettlement Programme and the Auckland Refugee Family Trust. Where Shall We Call Home? opens on Saturday 17 June and runs until Wednesday 5 July at the Depot Artspace, 28 Clarence St. An evening with speakers, stories and performances is planned for World Refugee Day The art of compassion... exhibition contributors (from left) on Tuesday 20 June.
