Hawke’s Bay Art Review

An exhibition showcasing the best of Art in Hawke's Bay

Date: Jun 24 – Jul 20Space: Main Gallery

After an absence of several years, Creative Arts Napier is proud to host the biennial HAWKE’S BAY ART REVIEW – a selected exhibition at the CAN, showcasing the best of Art in Hawke’s Bay.

Submissions were invited from local emerging and established artists in printmaking, painting and drawing, including 3D design and sculpture, from artists throughout New Zealand, who have close connections to the Bay. In total 148 entries were submitted, from which 94 artworks were selected.

CAN is delighted that Dr Carole Shepheard, Mixed Media Artist, Printmaker, Educator and Writer kindly agreed to be our selector for the Hawke’s Bay Art Review.  Retired Professor Emeritus of Fine Arts at Auckland University, Carole is also a holder of ONZM for her contribution to the visual arts.

Carole will also select the winning art work with a prize of $1000, to be announced at the Gala Opening on Friday 23 June 2017. On this one occasion, due to space constraints, the opening is by invitation only.
