  • Gala Night: $25.00

Gala Opening Night features Guest Artist Stephen Martyn Welch – described as ‘New Zealand’s top portrait painter without question’.

To see his work you can understand why. Capturing a likeness and essence of the person. A previous winner and multi-time finalist in the Adam Portraiture Awards his paintings if seen remain ingrained in your visual memory.

Live music, fine wine, exquisite food, cash bar, and Donna Demente’s masks will give a masquerade atmosphere. It’s also the first opportunity to purchase an original artwork from the Exhibition. The $1000 Emerging Artist Award (for a Southland Artist under twenty-five) is announced. Many of our artists make the journey to attend and enjoy what our small town offers. Tickets are limited to this prestigious first night.

Invited are some of New Zealand’s top artists from the far north to the deep south to exhibit, such as Barbara Franklet, Bruce Potter, Odelle Morshuis, Ursula Edwards, Hoglund Glass, Llew Summers, Anna Reid, and Megan Huffedine. These are but a few of the seventy artists exhibiting jewellery, wood, ceramics, photography, sculpture, textiles, painting and printmaking. Such high calibre artists make this a unique event and a must see on the arts calendar. Visited by hundreds of people of all ages from Otago and Southland and anyone else lucky enough to be passing through.
