This is a fund-raising event for the Academy so there is also the feel-good buzz you get via your art patronage. Previously one of the Academy’s best-kept secrets, this fun event is a paper auction where you post your bid on the list beside the painting(s) you wish to acquire and hope no one else comes along and tops it. If others do, you are able to go back to the list to head them off as many times as you like to up your bid, until the bell rings and it’s all over.


The small paintings, which are all 300mm square – some beautiful works of all styles and types painted and donated by Member Artists – all have a reserve of only $300 (with bidding increments of only $25) so this is your chance to buy that special little piece you have always wanted for that part of the wall that always seems so bare.


These paintings will be on display at the Academy from the 16th – 23rd September 2022 if you would like to call in to view and tickets can be purchased at the Gallery while you are there, during this period. Or you can purchase tickets by emailing or by ringing the Gallery on T: 04 499 8807 (select option 1).

And if all else fails Tickets will also be available at the Academy Front Desk on Auction night Friday 23rd – from 5pm to 8pm!!


We suggest Buy your tickets here right now.


Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you there!
