Diane offers a rare mix of
professionalism that she
delivers with warmth and
humour. She approaches
problems experienced by
parents, educators, couples
and families, at work or at
home. On her website, she
explains that ''it is important
that we support our children's
feelings and put boundaries
on their inappropriate
behaviour, so that we raise
children who are pleasant to
be with, so we will want to
spend more time in their
company''. She sees parenting
as ''a 20-year commitment to
raising a young adult who is
ethical, self-disciplined and
with the necessary skills to
survive in a complex world''.
Diane's favourite bumper
sticker reads: ''A mother's
place is in the wrong''.
Between The Lines
Waikari Free: Created by Celia Wilson and painted with a glauconite pigment. Her creative works
carry the names of the areas in which she finds the earth and plant pigments used in her paintings.

It will be open daily, except Mondays, from 10am to 4pm, for the rest of the exhibition. A programme

Located in the main street of Darfield, in rural
Canterbury, Selwyn Gallery is a modern
community gallery that showcases and retails
a wide variety of New Zealand art.
Gallery 1 has changing monthly exhibitions
of respected artists from across New Zealand;
and Gallery 2 offers artwork, predominantly by
Canterbury artists, for immediate sale.
The gallery is run by a not-for-profit
community group, the Malvern Community
Arts Council. The exhibition gallery was
opened in 1998 and extended in 2007, to
further aims to expose the people of Malvern
to quality art and to promote local artists living
in the area.
A collaborative exhibition of five Canterbury
artists is the latest offering on view.
Between The Lines features works by Sue
Alexander, Ruth Killoran, Ruth Stanton-

and their works bring together a mix of artistic
disciplines, including printmaking, painting,
sculpture and jewellery.
Between The Lines is the first exhibition for
this group, but all five artists agree their
creative collaboration will continue.
''Women artists are inspiring,'' Sue
Alexander says. ''The sharing of joint
knowledge leads to expansion of ideas and
motivation. It can create possibilities that may
never have been considered.''
Malvern Community Arts Council arts co-
ordinator Ingrid Cole says Between The Lines
refers to shared themes such as the lines
found in nature, contour lines and lines of
stratification, and lines connecting human
beings, like generation lines and our lines
