36 well-known local artists have created an exhibition of native flora, fauna and wildlife which will be on display and available to purchase at Pukaha Mount Bruce from March 30th until the end of July 2018.
Local artist Viv Walker has for the fifth consecutive year curated the Paintings at Pukaha exhibition for viewing in the Kaka Café and Huia room at the Pukaha visitor centre.
With support from sponsors Fall Protect, Sylkenwood, Hedley’s and New Zealand Pacific Studios artist can win prizes in the people’s choice award. The overall winning artwork as voted by the public will receive a free weekends residency at New Zealand Pacific studios. The Paintings at Pukaha exhibition will also be heading to Aratoi in Masterton. The exhibit will run at Aratoi from August 11th- September 9th, 2018. These additions have made Paintings at Pukaha a must-do on the art scene locally. Votes for the people’s choice award can be placed here from March 30th.
Artists include Paul Gadsby, Max Baylis, Jacky Pearson, Sandra Wong, Mark Dimock and Ian Chapman to name a few.
