Photo: SUPPLIED. Motueka s Sprig & Fern, the BNZ , Steph Wills dental clinic and Riwaka Hair are the latest venues for a Motueka Arts Council exhibition by Cushla Moorhead. Cushla said the exhibition was about the interweaving of light in all life, of how light shows in strips and lines, splashes and dots, in the sea, in the sky and on the land. Light brings colour to our lives, she said. I believe that all life is a journey and each painting is a journey of exploration, delving into the warp and weft of life and leading forever onwards. Colour excites and stimulates me and I find abstract work thought-provoking. It is more about feelings and emotions than concrete images and thus resonates with a deeper sense of self. Works from her Land Sea and Sky exhibition will be on display until October 1. Trying times for mud pluggers Mud pluggers: Nelson's John Ballie and Motueka's Zelma Stanley in action during Sunday's Dennis King Memorial Trials. Keith and Jill Anderson s Happy Valley property was over-run by small old vehicles on Sunday when the Nelson Vintage Car Club held its annual Dennis King Memorial Trial. Cars from the mid-1920s to the 1950s, many cobbled together from a variety of parts, competed with a strong contingent of Austin 7s to tackle the slopes in the affec- tionately known mud plug event for boasting rights. The cars are divided into classes for road-registered vehicles, long and short wheel-base cars and specials built for such events. Numbered markers along the course designate difficulty with the higher the number passed by the driver the higher their score. The Nelson event is one of four held by vintage car enthusiasts -- the others are at Balcairn, Marl- borough and on the West Coast -- as part of the annual Mainland Trial Series. Lance Braid led on overall points on Sunday, with Avon Hyde second and Gordon Dacombe third. Marion Edwin led the women s field with Zelma Stanley second and Colleen Frost third.
