Exciting Announcement: the NZ Art Show 2020 is going ONLINE!

We are extremely proud to be launching a dynamic virtual exhibition showcasing over 150 talented NZ artists. 

In response to Covid-19, the difficult yet necessary decision was made to cancel the NZ Art Show 2020 that was to be held over Queens Birthday weekend in Wellington.  However, to support our artists and to keep our arts community thriving and connected – The NZ Art Show is proud to be launching the NZ ART SHOW ONLINE, on May 1st.  All of the artists that were selected for this year’s show have been invited to exhibit with us online, and, like us, they are very excited at this opportunity!  All art in the online exhibition will be for sale. 

The NZ Art Show Online gallery will be open from May 1st – December 31st.

Stay tuned and each week we will be introducing you to some of the artists that were selected – you will be able to see and purchase their work from the comfort and safety of your home.  

Since 2004 the NZ Art Show has supported more than 4,000 artists, awarded more than $140,000 and have sold more than 23,000 works of art generating more than $14 million – we organise a stellar show and are proud of what we do for artists and the art loving community.  

A HUGE thank you to our leading sponsor ASB for allowing us get this initiative off the ground and for giving us and our artists the confidence to take the NZ Art Show to a new and exciting level.  

The online gallery is made possible with the support of our leading sponsor ASB, our valued sponsors Connected Accountants, Forsyth Barr, Signature Promotions and Baker Tilly Staples Rodway; and many of our Friends & ticket holders of the NZ Art Show 2020 who have shown their generous support.
