Devonport's Vauxhall Primary School will once again be home to work from over 100 of New Zealand's finest artists at its 5th Exhibition of Fine Art this June. VEFA commences on Friday 10th June with a ticketed Gala Evening, and is subsequently open free to the public throughout Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th June with children's art workshops, live art demonstrations and free family fun events running alongside the main exhibition.

A major fundraiser for Vauxhall school, VEFA will exhibit the work of many well known names including Reuben Paterson, Karl Maughan, Michel Tuffery, Mark Wooller, Paul Hartigan, Fatu Feu'u, Rob Tucker and many more. VEFA offers diverse works including paintings, ceramics, photography, sculpture, outdoor art and more.

VEFA opens on Friday 10th June with our traditional Gala Opening. Don your finery and take the opportunity to be the first to preview the art for sale at this ticketed event. Your ticket includes priority entry to preview the Exhibition and the opportunity to bid for auction pieces, along with a complimentary glass of bubbles, canapés, and live entertainment provided by special guests and well known local band, Wonderfish. A cash bar is also available.

The Gala Opening offers a unique opportunity to bid for special pieces only available by auction on this night. Regular updates on auction pieces and works for sale will be available on the VEFA website - www.vefa.co.nz.

On Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th, the art Exhibition is open free to the public. We are once again offering workshops, giving children an opportunity to take part in classes such as Wood Cut Printing with Michel Tuffery who is coming all the way from Wellington for VEFA; designing and decorating a terracotta pot with local artist, Greer Clayton; or creating beautiful tangled designs with pen and ink with Lou Powels, together with other exciting creative workshops. Advance bookings are required for workshops. To purchase a ticket for a workshop, go to www.vefa.co.nz.

Sunday sees the return of the popular Family Fun Day, with free art activities provided throughout the day suitable for the whole family. This year we are thrilled to be presenting live art demonstrations by Michel Tuffery, Flox, Component and Margaret Bray so come along and be inspired.

This fundraising event is proudly supported by premier sponsors Archibald & Shorter and "Jackie and Jane" of Harcourts Devonport.
