Annual Art Show in Wellington's TSB Arena
Every year art lovers flock to the TSB Bank Arena for the annual Art Show in Wellington. It's not only a place to appreciate and soak up some serious kiwiana culture, but you can also buy some of these original pieces.
The exhibition showcases artwork of all techniques, genres and styles from hundreds of NZ artists, and has been going since 2004.
Works range from high school students to experienced full-time artists. It’s a supportive environment that has enormous benefits for emerging and established artists alike. With some pretty impressive prizes and sponsorships on offer, you’ll get to see some fantastic work, and who knows, be inspired yourself?!
