Event description

Description

Paintings, sculptures, photography, jewellery. You don't need to be an art expert to find something you would love to take home!

Join us for the annual Mount Pleasant Art Exhibition Gala Evening held at the stunning Mount Pleasant Community Centre in its epic location overlooking the estuary.

The Art Exhibition will transform the centre into an art gallery and will be held over two days - an evening gala opening on Friday 20th September followed on Saturday 21st September in what promises to be an entertaining day out for the whole community.

This event is the major annual fundraiser for Mount Pleasant School with all money raised going towards the Mahuri Collective - see this exciting project here: https://www.mahuri.co.nz/

Artists:

Over 40 talented artists will be exhibiting more than 500 pieces for sale - artworks, jewellery and ceramics.

A live auction of donated artworks will take place at 7:30pm.

Our featured artist this year is Jo Ogier who is concerned with issues of conservation, ecology and the individual’s role in nurturing, protecting and preserving our world. Through her finely crafted watercolours, drawings and woodcuts she seeks to promote public awareness of the many endemic species of flora and fauna in New Zealand. Jo is an MFA graduate from the Otago School of Art and also holds a Diploma in Plant and Wildlife Illustration (NSW Australia), along with a series of scholarships and awards – including the William Hodges Fellowship awarded to her in 2000.

Every ticket receives:

- First option to view and purchase the art

- Canapés and refreshments

- Great venue with stunning estuary views

- Live auction - 7:30pm

- Mingling with some of the exhibiting artists
