Artists with Impairments

Art Hawke’s Bay is happy to announce that at this year’s exhibition there will be a display specifically for Artists with Impairments, whatever they may be. We know that being an artist is a hard road to travel. Being an artist with impairments takes extra layers of resilience and fortitude, so we are very pleased to give support and encouragement by providing a platform for your work.

As an introduction in 2019 we invite up to 3 submissions from each artist who feels that this display suits them at present. There won’t be a selection process or submission fee, and works will not be part of the judging. Artists are welcome to display a price on works for sale, and our usual commission will be taken on works sold.

All we require is a paragraph or two about you as an artist & the challenges you experience.  This will be displayed with your art work.

You are invited to bring your art work to the venue (the Cheval Room at the Hastings Racing Centre) on Sunday 17 March between 1-4pm.

If you have any queries, please contact Karen Pallesen, 027 868 7813 or
