The Christchurch Art Show Debuts June 2014

( Calling all artists! – Entries are now open for The Christchurch Art Show and we are looking for your creative talent.

The Christchurch Art Show is the South Island’s new premiere annual art sales event.
The show debuts mid June 2014 and is a stellar opportunity for new, emerging and established artists to showcase and sell their works in a four day art extravaganza.
It will be based at the new Events Centre at the Wigram Air Force Museum.

The Christchurch Art Show offers selected artists an affordable platform to sell their works to a wide range of people, promoting interaction between the public and arts practice. The show’s two directors Hannah Buckby and Kate Morrison had the idea to host the large art event in the South Island to promote Christchurch as a positive arts destination and to provide more hanging space for local artists. They are expecting close to 10000 people to come through the Air Force museum over the 4 days and have committed to an annual event as they believe this will give artists an ongoing opportunity to develop and grow their works.

The art is priced to sell from $50 to $5000 an affordable market for everyone from corporate business to small gifts.

Kate Morrison, Creative Director for The Christchurch Art Show says ‘We are very excited about the show and we think the time is right for this venture. The show supports arts locally and will attract visitors into Christchurch. We want to become part of Christchurch’s unique identity and celebrate Christchurch as an arts destination.’
