A unique Year of the Rooster Exhibition showcasing 38 life-sized rooster sculptures in Parnell art galleries and select retailers is taking place 28 Jan-12 Feb 2017.

The main exhibition is primarily along Parnell Road, with a ‘mini’ rooster coop on The Strand in Matisse and the E & H Building complex.

Artists and celebrities have added their creative genius to each of the rooster art pieces and are well-known New Zealand and internationally recognised artists, as well as a few recognised celebrities of local and international fame. Their inspirations in creating their rooster tells a story in itself as each piece has taken on its own personality.

The roosters will be auctioned for charity on 16 February 2017. During the Rooster Exhibition, you are invited to establish and secure your interest in any of the art pieces by making a ‘silent’ bid, prior to it being formally auctioned at Mossgreen-Webb’s in Parnell. When on show in the galleries and stores, each rooster on show will have a QR code displayed with it for you to place your ‘silent’ bid. You are welcome to bid on as many roosters as you like.

Bids over $500 are invited.

Parnell Business Association is delighted to give its support in 2017 to The Starship Foundation, with profits from the auction going towards the Starship National Air Ambulance Service.

You are invited to come and meet some of the artists at 5:30pm.
The official auction will commence at 6:30pm.
