The NZ Art Show is the largest exhibition and sale of original and affordable art by emerging and established New Zealand artists. The show is an iconic annual art event that makes it easy for any New Zealander to own original New Zealand art. 

Taking place over Queen’s Birthday weekend 2018, it’s a visual feast for art lovers and those interested in purchasing original New Zealand Art at affordable prices; the average sale price is $650.

Featuring thousands of artworks by hundreds of artists the NZ Art Show represents a broad range of styles and media.  And all presented professionally in a dynamic and inspiring environment on Wellington's vibrant waterfront. This is the perfect opportunity to start or add to your art collection; it’s also an ideal way to meet some of the artists who are on-site for the duration of the show.

You don’t need to know anything about art – the NZ Art Show is for everyone.
