1:31 The Les and Milly Paris Art Collection
Ahead of one of the art auctions of the year, we remember the Les and Milly Paris Art Collection, gathered over decades of the Wellington couple falling in love with works of art. A candid Milly gives an interview in her art filled lounge before the works that won’t accompany to her new home in Australia, are taken down for sale. See a video of the works.
1:17 Celebrating Women in Construction
Anything a man can do….a woman might do differently and that’s positive as far as the women who work in the construction industry are concerned. ‘Celebrating Women in Construction’ is a photo exhibition organised by NAWIC: National Association of Women in Construction which launches at Thistle Hall gallery this week. Their goal is to showcase the diversity of roles and contribution that women are making in all aspects of the industry; archaeology, plastering, engineering, carpentry, abseil painting and more. Sonia Sly meets some of the women who have become reluctant poster girls for the exhibition.
