Artists, designers and craftspeople all over New Zealand were challenged to prepare works for Winstone Ties That Bind, a major selected theme exhibition sponsored by Winstone Ltd., which was held at the Wellington City Art Gallery in May 1985.

This successful collaboration between Winstone Ltd., Wellington City Art Gallery and the Crafts Council of New Zealand resulted in a national tour; the Fisher Gallery being the Auckland venue.

Artwork in any media was accepted as long as two or more units were bound, bolted, bracketed, tied, braided, nailed, hinged, coupled, locked, knotted or stuck together.

The work varied enormously, incorporating both craft and sculptural elements, political and functional aspects, and visual and literal components.

The winner of this competition, Helen Pollock, will be exhibiting work in the Studio Gallery.
