Pre-Christmas Art Sale

5th November - 29th November 2015

 We have had a wonderful and overwhelming response to the call for entries for this members exhibition.

Our Member Artists have responded with a record number of works for this 'cash and carry' style exhibition. There's  lots of very well crafted and accessibly priced works and such a variety that it's fair to say there is something for everyone.

This is a great opportunity to get the jump on the Christmas rush. Whether you’re spoiling yourself or someone special there’s something in the exhibition for everyone. 

Remember it is a cash and carry so if it sells it is gone and will be replaced, so this is a constantly changing exhibition.

Contemporary, Affordable. Collectable.

The exhibition runs until 29 November from 10 am daily.

Entry is Free

Art from the Heart

20 February - 10 March 2016

“Art from the Heart" is all about artists and the work they love to make.

This is an invitation to all artists to start planning and thinking, to prepare to participate in a very exciting project.

Listed in the catalogue and spanning the International Festival of Arts 2016, the NZ Academy of Fine Arts will stage an exhibition showcasing NZ artists and crafts-people, exhibiting work that expresses their personal creative approach, and revealing the process of making it.
