Auckland Grammar School Art House Tour

Auckland Grammar School Art House Tour

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sat 12 Nov ’16, 10:00am – 4:00pm


Auckland Grammar School, 55-85 Mountain Rd, Epsom



In a first for Auckland Grammar School, the School offers the chance to step inside ten superb homes from within the Grammar community and buy some of the best art from both local galleries and individual artists.

This unique tour, in association with Barfoot & Thompson, takes the place of the Grammar Art Expo of previous years and introduces an exciting new concept.

Homes on the tour range from historic villas to architect-designed new builds and showcase some of the best in interior design along with some stunning gardens. Featured within each home will be the work of 4-5 different artists, from paintings to sculpture, all available to purchase. Four galleries have partnered with the school for the event – Gow Langsford, Michael Lett, Hopkinson Mossman and Tim Melville – and in some instances, the artists themselves will be ‘in residence’ with their work. Also on the tour will be one of Grammar’s own historic properties – the 114-year-old Tibbs House, home to generations of boarders.

Included in the ticket price is entry to a Friday night launch event in the School’s Great Hall, where a number of unique artworks will be up for auction along with an exhibition of student artwork, also available for sale. The auction artworks all hold a special connection to the School – one of them is a framed ice axe belonging to former Grammar student Sir Edmund Hillary, while other pieces are the works of critically-acclaimed Grammar Old Boys Greer Twiss, Scott Gardiner and Brad Novak and current art master Justin Boroughs.

A complimentary glass of wine or beer will be offered upon arrival at the launch event. A cash bar is available thereafter. Alcohol will not be served to attendees under the age of 18. At the launch event you will be able to confirm your registration and collect your tour pack.
