Only Two Weeks to Go!!

We’re counting down the days

before we move into the TSB Arena and set up for our 20th anniversary show. We’re looking forward to celebrating with our arts community: artists, art lovers and supporters. So make sure you get your tickets now and join us in a dynamic celebration of art and community, as we mark this significant milestone.

Showcasing Contemporary New Zealand Art for 20 Years

For 20 years, the NZ Art Show has showcased 5,000 artists to 100,000 art lovers. 28,000 artworks have been sold, generating $18 million, and returning more than $14 million to the artists.  Hundreds of artists are now practising full-time as a direct result of the show and we look forward to continuing to support artists in the years to come.

Come and celebrate the achievements of our artists. 200 artists have created artworks especially for this show so you’ll be amongst the first to see them.

Here is a small handful of artists we’ll be celebrating this year – some of them will be at the show – so, come, meet them and hear the inspiration behind their works.

Juliet Best, Rae West, Kelly Rowe, Dean Proudfoot, Ben Reid, Richard Thurston, Rick Spencer, Gemma Baldock, and Sarah Platt.
