Sculpture Category 2018

We invite sculpture artists to submit an entry to the MCL Art Hawke’s Bay Exhibition being held 22-25 March 2018, with Opening Night Wednesday 21 March.

There is a prize of $250 for the winner of the sculpture section.

The sculpture may be on any subject but we encourage sculptors to have a reference to Hawke’s Bay if possible.

Entry is limited to one per person, with the dimensions of the work to be no greater than 750mm x 500mm x 1800mm high.  They can of course be smaller.

Please email your expression of interest to Sheryl Eustace at 50sheryle@gmail.com before 5 March 2018.

After this, please send images of 3 sides of the sculpture to Sheryl at 50sheryle@gmail.com – no later than 8 March 2018.

Initial selection will be made from these images. The final selection and winner will be judged at the venue by our guest selector.  

You will be asked to bring your sculpture to the venue (Cheval Rooms at the Hastings Racecourse) on Sunday 18 March at 3pm.

You will be notified by 20 March if your sculpture has been selected.  

The entry fee is $10.00.   Click here for entry form.

Schools Category 2018

We invite Hawke’s Bay secondary school art teachers to select a work by one student from each school as an entry for the Schools Category.  There will be a prize of $250 for the winner of this category.  

The exhibition will run from 5.30pm Wednesday 21 March to 6pm Sunday 25 March 2018.

There are spaces for only 12 art works so please get in touch with us to confirm your entry as soon as possible.

Please contact Wendy Roger at 021 08534085 or roger.wendy@gmail.com if you have any queries.  She would love to hear your thoughts and ideas regarding this invitation.  

Last year Art Hawke’s Bay showcased a display by student artists that was very well received. We hope these promotions give young artists confidence to pursue and develop their artistic talents, and experience in taking part in a public exhibition.  It will also connect the young artists with local art clubs.
