2021 Exhibition – Artfully Yours!
Artfully Yours, the 14th annual Art Hawke’s Bay Exhibition, is being held in a new venue, the Community Arts Centre in Russell Street Hastings, from 12 – 24 April.
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 does 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: Land, Water, People, Abstract and Art Unlimited. There is also be a Sculpture category. The winners of all these categories won prizes of $300 each. The Schools category winner received a prize of $250. Prizes were also awarded for Best in Exhibition ($400), a special prize “Most Imaginative” ($350) and a Best of the Backroom Prize – an subscription to the Aotearoa Artist – New Zealand Artist magazine.
At the end of the exhibition, there will be a People’s Choice Award ($75), so call in and place your vote for your favourite work!
We had the most awesome Exhibition Opening & Awards Evening on Monday 12 April.
It was lovely to see so many artists and supporters come along and enjoy the art and sculptures. Many thanks to all our many guests, artists, committee & volunteers. Thank you to the Woodford House students who played so well, and their staff. Our two selectors, John Brown and Susan Mabin did a wonderful job working through so many entries – thank you! A special thank you to our generous sponsors and grant providers, without whom there would not be an exhibition.
We look forward to seeing you at Artfully Yours from 12 – 24 April.
A free workshop will be held for ten artists with tutor Helen Dynes. Please note this workshop has been postponed. A new date will be announced after the 2021 exhibition. Workshop is now FULL.
