2021 Exhibition – Artfully Yours!

Artfully Yours, the 14th annual Art Hawke’s Bay Exhibition, will be held in a new venue – the Hastings Community Arts Centre in Russell St. This will allow for a much longer exhibition, from 12 – 24 April.  Opening Night is Monday 14 April from 5pm.

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.

Art HB – poP uP Art Gallery

Art HB’s first poP uP Gallery! Artists and sculptors were invited to bring along art to our poP uP Art Gallery from  23 November to 24 December.  The gallery  popped up at the former T & T Shop in Heretaunga Street East (opposite Focal Point Cinema). We were very pleased with the event.  Thank you to everyone who popped up and supported it in any way – the artists and crafts fold who displayed works, our wonderful customers who purchased items and to our hardworking volunteers.
