ANZAC Day is when we pause to remember those New Zealanders and Australians killed in war, to honour returned servicemen and women and to pay tribute to those personnel who are currently serving their countries. Although its timing recalls the landing at Gallipoli of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps on 25 April 1915, the Commemorative Service is for all those who have given their lives during conflict.
The first will be a Dawn Service, held at 6 AM on Thursday 25th April at Vietnam Veterans Plaza, 55 Water Street, between Broad Street and Old Slip, New York, 10004. Please note new location. The Service will be held rain or shine – we encourage you to come prepared with warm clothing & an umbrella in case of inclement weather.
The traditional Sunday Service is a ticketed event and will be held on Sunday 28th April commencing at 10:30 AM at the ANZAC Memorial Garden, RockefellerCenter, 620 Fifth Avenue, New York, 10022. The entrance to the Garden is on the south side of West 50th Street. In the event of inclement weather, the service will be held in the room adjacent to the Garden. Immediately following the Sunday Service, guests are invited to join us for morning tea at RockefellerCenter.
Due to limited space at the Garden, numbers are restricted for the Sunday Service. For 2013, tickets will be provided in advance. Tickets to the Sunday Service will be allocated by lottery and are subject to availability. Each family will be allocated a maximum of two tickets. The Australian and New Zealand Consuls General apologise in advance to those who are disappointed. We strongly encourage you to attend the Dawn Service on Thursday 25th April as this is an open event.
New Zealand citizens please email email@example.com
Australian citizens please email Public-Affairs-NYCG@dfat.gov.au.
We will contact you in the week commencing Monday 22nd April if you have been allocated space at the service.
Please carry photo identification (for example, ID card, driver’s license or passport). Bags may be searched before being granted access to the Garden. Due to the nature of the Service, respectful attire is requested.
Both Services will be co-hosted by New Zealand and Australian Consuls General.
We look forward to seeing you.
Legendary Kiwi band The Bats will be playing the NYC Popfest this year.
Formed in 1982 and strongly linked to the “Dunedin Sound” musicians that emerged in the early 1980s, The Bats have retained the same four members to the present day. They have previously toured the US supporting Radiohead, and their 1987 album Daddy’s Highway is often regarded as one of the best NZ albums of the 1980s.
Chelsea’s Agora Gallery will feature the original work of New Zealand artist John Wolter in Interpretive Realms. The exhibition is scheduled to run from April 19, 2013 through May 9, 2013. The opening reception will be held on Thursday night, April 25, 2013 from 6-8 pm.
The art of New Zealand sculptor John Wolter is inspired primarily by the human form in motion. In his art, Wolter looks carefully at the intricate connections between music and movement, and how this comes to be expressed in the human figure, whether the movement is graceful, quirky, dynamic, or riddled with tension. Each sculpture is hand-formed as the artist merges various pieces of metals using hammers, grinders, torches, and welding. It is through this process that Wolter is able to bring to life expressive vibrant forms that celebrate the beauty of the human spirit.
Central to Wolter’s creative process is a lifelong love for music, which inspires his concepts and drives the execution of his art. Within each piece, Wolter hopes to tell a story and portray the human form and condition in a captured moment both physical and emotive. Indeed, the viewer cannot help but be drawn in by the characters depicted, as each figure simultaneously captures both the sacredness of the individual spirit and the universal human experience of which we all form a part.
Reception: Thursday, April 25, 2013, 6-8 pm
Gallery Location: 530 West 25th St, New York City
Gallery Hours: Tues – Sat, 11a.m. – 6 p.m.
This April, two inspiring exhibitions are coming to Agora Gallery, Interpretive Realms combines a thrilling sense of kinetic excitement with the detached ability to reflect and describe. The result is work that has one foot in the everyday world and the other in that of the imagination, elevating both to a new and interesting level. In Altered States of Reality: An Exhibition of Analog and Digital Photography, fine art photographers employ a variety of techniques and styles but each one manages to capture something intriguing and thought-provoking in their memorable images. In the spirit of giving back to the community, some of the participating artists are donating 10% of their proceeds from the sale of any exhibiting artwork to the Cameras for Kids Foundation, an organization which uses cameras and the teaching of photography to give underprivileged children new skills and confidence. The exhibitions open on April 19, 2013 and continue until May 9, 2013. The opening reception will take place on the evening of Thursday, April 25, 2013. Entrance is free and all art lovers are encouraged to attend to be entranced by these bewitching works.
