This is a visual extravaganza that we feel encourages people to develop an interest in original New Zealand art.

The 2017 Christchurch Art Show opens this Thursday, June 15, with the opening gala event giving art lovers the opportunity to get their first look at the works on display. “The artists show what they believe are their most impressive works on opening night, so it’s a chance for people to see them first and purchase if they wish,” creative director Kate Morrison says. The Top 10 Artists will also be announced at the event. These 10 signature pieces of
artwork have been specially created for the Lawson’s Dry Hills People’s Choice Award 2017 and will be revealed for the first time on Thursday night, and available for purchase. Host for the evening will be broadcaster Chris Lynch, and visitors will enjoy wine, cheese and nibbles and live music as they view the artworks. The event starts at 7.30pm and tickets can be purchased through Ticketek or on the Christchurch Art Show website, chchartshow.co.nz. They cost $40 each.
On the following three show days – Friday, June 16, Saturday June 17 and Sunday, June 18 the show will be open from 10am-7pm Friday and Saturday and 10am-4pm Sunday, so there are plenty more opportunities to see the works and talk to the artists. “Hundreds of artists from all over New Zealand have thousands of works in the show and are here to engage with the public in Christchurch,” Kate says. “We have art from $50 to $6000 and many Christchurch artists will be here, along with artists from all over New Zealand. This is a visual extravaganza that we feel encourages people to develop an interest in original New Zealand art.” This year’s show is the fourth annual show and Kate says the organisers are finding that more and more people in Christchurch are becoming aware of it and going to view and buy work. “The show is constantly changing as works sell and move on, with the artists then replacing them with new pieces. It’s worth it to come out for another look in the weekend after viewing the first time on opening night.” Show day tickets can be purchased on the Christchurch Art Show website. They are $10 each with a discount for Gold Card and student ID holders.
