Author Theresa Sjoquist presents a fascinating illustrated discussion on Yvonne Rust, QSM, based on the research for the biography, Yvonne Rust: Maverick Spirit. Rust had enormous impact on culture in NZ and many NZ creatives owe her much: Sir Jon Trimmer - ballet dancer, Raymond Hawthorne - theatre director, Ted Bracey - arts educator (head of Ilam), John Madden - painter, Stephanie Sheehan - painter, Ian Dalzell - NZs only coal-firing potter, Ian Boustridge - jade sculptor, Michael Trumic - ceramic artist tutor, John Crawford - potter, and many more. Come and enjoy an evening which celebrates the life of this exceptional artist and educator.
