Celebrating 15 years of a Jolly Good Show


Happy Birthday to Us

2018 marks 15 years of the NZ Art Show, 10 years of the People’s Choice Award Sponsored by Brendan Foot Supersite – formerly called the Signature Piece Art Awards – and 5 years of the Emerging Artist Award sponsored by Richard Nelson. This week, we celebrated this occasion in a special function for Friends and Sponsors at the Macs Function Centre, Wellington, with an exhibition by some previous award winners. Thanks to all those who came and helped make it the special night that it was. Here are a few photos from the evening. Photos Andrew Turner for Brendan Foot Supersite.
