'Spooked' Book Launch

On Friday the 12th of August Inverlochy hosted a book launch for James Gilberd and Jo Davey's book - 'Spooked'  - about the paranormal research that the Strange Occurences Team has conducted in New Zealand over the last few years. Some of this research took place at the art school itself.

The evening was a great success and many people were lucky enough to buy books signed by the authors and some books are still for sale at the art school.

There is also an exhibition running in the hall and the tea room at the art school between 9-5 each day this week - August 15th - 19th featuring real photos of ghosts and other objects associated with paranormal research.

On Saturday there will be seminar on paranormal investigation (complete with film/tea/biscuits) at the art school between 4-7pm - all welcome.

There is also an exhibition featuring work by artists inspired by the paranormal at Mygalaxi  Gallery in Dixon Street running for the next three weeks until the 3rd of September.

This damage around the mouth of this clay head may have been caused by the Inverlochy entity itself who pushed a cup into the still wet clay. Come along to the art school and see this object(and others) to get the full story or buy 'Spooked' - out now for $39.95 from Random House.

'Ducky Time Out' - Inverlochy themed painting by Rieko Woodford.

Rieko Woodford-Robinson is a professional artist and illustrator from Japan who moved to New Zealand just over ten years ago. While her main work is illustrating childrens’ books Rieko also creates magical little paintings incorporating acrylic painting and screen-printing.

Rieko has taken a number of classes at Inverlochy and last year she had her first exhibition of her paintings at the  Deluxe Café in Wellington.

Reiko has an exhibition of new work - including the painting below - coming up soon at Thistle Hall in Wellington between the 28th of November and the 4th of December, 2011. The opening night(all welcome) is on Monday 28th from 6pm.


This painting - 'Ducky Time Out'  illustrates a naughty young animal sitting at the bottom of the stairs at the art school.  Inverlochy tutors actually do make naughty children sit on these stairs!
