September was a very strong month, no doubt brought on by buyers seeking to beat the GST increase. This pre-GST surge in sales was always going to result in a sales dip in October, but the overall trend for the year remains positive. Registration data just released by NZ Transport Agency shows that at 7297 units, the overall new vehicle market for October was down by 647 units (8.1 percent) compared to September 2010. However, compared to the same month last year the market was up by 399 units (5.8 percent). AA entries good Sixty vehicles have been entered in the 2010 AA Motoring Excellence Awards, the 'Oscars' of the New Zealand motoring industry. The 11 award categories this year are: Small, compact, medium, large, small and large cross- over, luxury/executive, and performance cars; environmental; motoring journalism; customer satisfaction; and safety. A Supreme Winner will also be announced. The 60 vehicles, worth $3.8 million, have arrived at Taupo Motor Sport Park and judging will take place this week. 10 new Holdens Having already revealed the new VE Series II Commodore and its Barina Spark, Holden says it will launch a further 10 new models in 20 months, including variations on the Cruze theme, a new Captiva and a non-Spark Barina. Also in the pipeline is Holden's version of the Volt range-extended hybrid, and a new Colorado. Price reduction A UK survey by RoadPilot navigation has found that nearly half of British motorists claim to have reduced their average speed in the past 12 months. Of that number 66 percent had slowed down because of rising fuel prices while and 26 percent cited traffic enforcement. Other factors listed include greater road congestion and environmental concerns. Painter opens her studio for Muriwai trail Art campaigner: Gaylene Earl prepares for the Muriwai Arts Trail and will also have her studio open for visitors. Artwork is always a deeply personal state- ment for Muriwai resi- dent Gaylene Earl. It reflects her love of nature and passion for the land, especially liv- ing on an expansive rural block overlooking Goldie Bush. Gaylene says the environment sustains her creativity. She is a campaigner for ecology and man's impact on the natural world and her art school and painting classes became a catalyst for expressing her views on nature. Her Landscape Sub- division Series in 2007 is a particularly powerful example, incorporating a series of paintings in montage grid format to represent Maori and col- onial settlement, the use and abuse of the land, the destruction of native vegetation and other environmental impacts and their consequences. Gaylene's most recent work this year -- Skyscape Contemplation Series -- is more con- templative and reflec- tive, showing the sky and its relationship to the landscape in a series of stacks or slides depicting different cloud formations and weather patterns. They were inspired by her 33-day walk along the Camino Santiago pilgrim trail in Northern Spain and draw the viewer in to appear one way initially, but after a while, with contem- plation they change''. Her work appears in the Muriwai Arts Trail from November 20 to 21 at the main exhibition at Houghtons Bush Camp. Her open studio, as part of the trail, also features more of her work in various stages of progress. Gaylene is looking forward to con- necting with the com- munity along with celebrating the unique west coast environment. ARTS TRAIL Visitors to this year's Muriwai Arts Trail have more artworks and styles to savour. More than 50 Muriwai painters, photo- graphers, jewellers, sculptors, weavers and ceramicists will gather on November 20-21 for an exhi- bition. Among the ex- hibitors are Brent Wong, Alan Pres- ton, Donna Hanson, Todd Douglas and Maree Wilson. Only Fools and Horses Barn joins the trail to host an historic photo show and craft market. Artists will also open their private studios to the pub- lic. Free buses will run between the venues. The main venue is Houghtons Bush Camp, 75 Motutara Rd, Muriwai, Saturday and Sunday, 10am- 6pm.
