I found out today that my submission to the The New Zealand Art Show was successful! This is a three day visual feast for art lovers and those interested in purchasing original New Zealand Art for under $5,000.
The show exhibits and sells work by hundreds of new, emerging and established artists from around New Zealand. Each year there is an enormous variety of art styles, genres and media.
So am quite chuffed to get selected.
The first Mapua Art group Original Art Sale was held over the Queen's Birthday weekend at Mapua. It was great to see 74 works from the group hanging in the hall. The opening night was a real buzz with sales, lovely local wine, delicious nibbles and an inspirational talk by Lisa Chandler.
I sold two paintings to a buyer from Christchurch. They are "Making Waves II" and "Ripples" which can be seen under the Paintings 2 tab. I also got 3rd equal in the People's Choice for "Left Turn" which can be found under the Paintings 4 tab. So all in all a good weekend, made up for the miserable weather!
