Catherine Gilmour, 36, succumbed to the dis- ease on February 19. She was diagnosed with a brain tumour sev- eral years ago while her husband was still serv- ing on the Waitakere City Council. Mr Gilmour resigned from the post in 2007 to spend more time with his ailing wife and the pair settled into a quieter life at Port Waikato. Both were big fund- raisers for Variety -- the Children s Charity. Mr Gilmour is also a long-time supporter of the Mad Butcher and Suburban Newspapers Community Trust. He donated his ser- vices at the trust s large Operation Heal fund- raising evening in December. Proceeds from the function will help pur- chase high-tech equip- ment for the National Burn Centre. Ewen s help meant a lot to us, chairman Sir Peter Leitch says. His wife was ser- iously ill at that stage and yet they both found the time to include us in their thinking and plan- ning at what must have been a tremendously dif- ficult time. Local news online at www.easterncourier.co.nz Winning artwork focuses on need for conservation Conserve or Catalogue: Uxbridge Creative Centre and Auckland Council announce Sarah Brill's artwork the winner of this year's Estuary Artworks competition. By KRISTINA RAPLEY Conserving nature was the theme behind this year s Estuary Artworks winning work. Auckland artist Sarah Brill, who was an art teacher at Macleans Col- lege for several years, was the judges pick for the $8000 prize. The competition was run by Uxbridge Cre- ative Centre in conjunc- tion with the Auckland Council and Ms Brill s sculptural installation titled Conserve or Cata- logue will now become part of the Auckland Council art collection. The artwork illus- trates the beauty of the Tamaki Estuary and points out the need to conserve the wildlife and landscape rather than cataloguing it in a museum. Uxbridge curator Sophie Keyse says she is thrilled with the winning piece. Conserve or Cata- logue is the result of tire- less research into the ecology of the Tamaki Estuary and a lot of hard work. It really demon- strates Sarah s excep- tional artistic talent. Now into its fifth year, Estuary Artworks aims to raise the profile of the estuary by encouraging artists to take an active role protecting and preserving it. This year they received nearly 90 mixed media entries and 53 of them are now on display at Uxbridge Cre- ative Centre in Howick until March 9. The public also has the opportunity to vote for their favourite artwork with the People s Choice Award, to be announced on March 10. Uxbridge Creative Centre is on 35 Uxbridge Rd, Howick.
