The Wellington Art Show, held in beautiful new events centre Tākina, is the latest to be presented by Art Shows Across Aotearoa. With successful annual art shows established in Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin and Queenstown (Queenstown runs biannually with Dunedin) it is now Wellington’s turn. Art Shows Across Aotearoa presents the best shows, at the best and busiest venues, with a range of diverse contemporary art across four events annually. Thousands come through the doors to look, to buy art and to meet and greet the 100s of artists who have produced it. Their growing range of highly regarded art awards, prizes and scholarships is second to none. Enjoy the excitement, vote where you can and note the winners – they do tend to sell out quickly.
