The NZ Art Show is an annual sale of original New Zealand art works, with the aim of encouraging all New Zealanders to own original local art. With an online gallery running alongside the show, and artworks priced between $50 and $5,000, the NZ Art Show is hugely accessible and represents New Zealand’s diverse and unique artistic community.

Exhibiting around 3,000 works from around 300 artists in a range of styles and mediums, the show also helps to establish local artists. As well as exhibiting works for sale, 10 pieces will be chosen by the show’s selection panel to be displayed in the show’s Signature Piece Gallery with the $3,000 cash prize for the Brendan Foot Signature Art Piece Award being decided by public vote – everyone that visits the show can vote.
The NZ Art Show is a non-profit organisation, with the goal of providing opportunity for NZ artists to further their development. It’s a significant contributor to the local art community, and ASB is proud to show our support.
During Gala night there will be a special work produced by street artist, DSIDE. The artwork will be created and installed prior to the show so that event attendees can colour in, and bring the artwork to life. The resulting artwork will be installed at Ronald McDonald House where it will be able to be re-coloured by families again and again.
The dates for the 2017 show:
- Queen’s Birthday Weekend, June 2 – 5, Friday – Monday, daily from 10am
- Gala Evening Thursday June 1, 6.30pm
