2021 Exhibition – Artfully Yours!
Artfully Yours, the 14th annual Art Hawke’s Bay Exhibition, will be held in a new venue in April 2021 – the Hastings Community Arts Centre in Russell St.
This will allow for a much longer exhibition. This event brings together works by members of art groups throughout Hawke’s Bay in one combined selected exhibition, during which all entries are for sale.
The 2021 Exhibition will not have a Hawke’s Bay theme as in the past. Artists still need to be members of a Hawke’s Bay art group or special members of Art Hawke’s Bay, however an exception is made for sculptors.
The art categories are the same as planned for 2020 (which had to be cancelled): Land, Water, People, Abstract and Art Unlimited. There will also be a Sculpture category. The winners of all these categories will prizes of $300 each. The Schools category winner will receive a prize of $250. Additional prizes will be awarded for Best in Exhibition ($400), the People’s Choice Award, a Special Prize and a Best of the Backroom Prize.
The exhibition is a non-profit event, funded mainly by local grant providers and sponsors. Art Hawke’s Bay is very appreciative of their generous support.
Calling all Sculptors! We welcome expression of interest from you.. please email Sheryl at firstname.lastname@example.org
Because of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Artfully Yours 2020 Art Hawke’s Bay Exhibition had to be cancelled just before opening date.
Those who entered the exhibition were contacted and either chose to be refunded for payments or took up the option leaving the payments with the committee for the the next exhibition, planned to take place in 2021, circumstances allowing.
Our sponsors were informed and some have generously told us to hold the prize money until the next event.
A huge thank you to all the artists and sculptors for the many entries we received. To our selectors for 2020 John and Susan. To our wonderful supporters and volunteers, our generous sponsors and grant providers, without whom we could not hold exhibitions. A special thanks to all the committee members for their many months of planning and preparing. We came to so close to holding the exhibition and it was shaping up to be a very special one. We are now planning and looking forward to the 2021 Exhibition!
