Many of NZ’s most famous and finest artists are exhibiting at this year's 10th Anniversary Auckland Grammar School art expo.
The event is probably the biggest and best school art exhibition anywhere in New Zealand. Organisers expect to net $80,000 for the school’s foundation trust.
Organising committee chair Annabel Lush said today they have about 120 artists exhibiting over 600 pieces of art: "We take over the school’s main hall, which is a fabulous venue and is transformed from the usual rows of bleachers to a sea of crisp black panels. People are stunned by the transformation".
Lush says, "Auckland Grammar is very well known for its sportsmen, politicians and business leaders but it also excels in the fields of performing and visual arts."
Aside from a sneak peek on our website, the Preview Evening is the first opportunity to view and purchase the art.
Buying has traditionally been keen at the Preview Evening. As visitors mingle with a glass of wine in hand, red "Sold" stickers appear next to many of the art works. Last year, prices ranged from $150 to $6,000, making art - and an opportunity to contribute to the school - available to every budget.
Tickets are available from the Development Office, Auckland Grammar School.
