House of Cards, a 52 day evolving exhibit

img_8887

A house of cards, a 52 day evolving exhibit is the latest and greatest creative project from Steve, our creative director.

He has created a giant pack of cards and the premiss is that every day a new card get drawn from the pack and used, with the cards already drawn, to build that days’ card house.

Friends and public have been invited to book a day and come and participate in the project which is nearing it’s half way point.

This is a press release issued on day 20 to draw attention to the themes of the exhibit,  shelter and housing affordability.

“Day 20 sees Tasman artist Steve Richards reveal his hand and build a card house he can sleep in.

This is a response to the 52 day evolving exhibit’s theme, ‘a practical solution to housing affordability’

“It’s really luck of the draw whether you are in the housing market or not. The government are doing all in their power to 

maintain upward pressure on house prices as this maintains economic growth. Meanwhile the house of cards becomes ever more unstable”

The exhibit finishes 12 November, there are still plenty of days available if you would like to come and participate.

You can follow progress on Jester House instagram  and facebook.

In the heart of the Tasman region the Boot offers the ideal setting for unwinding from the hurley burley of life.

It is also ideally placed to explore all the bounty this area has to offer – beaches, mountains, Abel Tasman National Park, wineries, galleries, cafes, golf courses, the city of Nelson and quaint villages and towns.

The Boot is a fully equipped stand alone cottage. Downstairs in the lounge there is a comfy couch in front of the open fire. The kitchenette has tea and coffee making facilities and a mini bar. The tiled bathroom is equipped with toiletries, soft towels, hairdryer and a shower built for two.

Up the spiral staircase you’ll find the bedroom with a regal queen-sized bed, dark curtains for late morning rises, and a Juliet balcony with views into the courtyard and across the pond.

The courtyard itself is a sheltered outdoor space surrounded by a fragrant garden, ideal for soaking up the Tasman sunshine on sun loungers or enjoying long evenings of alfresco dining by the fire.

Fine Nelson Art, fresh flowers, candles, complementary chocolates, a stereo and no television complete the romantic scene.

Breakfast of your choice is delivered to your door any time before midday.

Hard to describe in a word but, DELIGHTFUL. Why wouldn’t you want to stay?
