The Exhibition is funded mainly by sponsors and grant providers.  Art Hawke’s Bay is very grateful for their support, without which we could not hold the Exhibition.

MCL logo

We are delighted to have MCL Construction Ltd. (MCL) as our main sponsor.

MCL Construction Ltd. is proud to be sponsoring the MCL Construction 2018 Art Hawke's Bay Exhibition. As a long standing Hawke’s Bay local company of 70 years we have been involved in the region’s ever-changing skyline which has also been captured by many local artists.

The MCL brand Construction inspired by life complements the inspiration of Hawke's Bay artists. With buildings goes art and we have provided many platforms to display the talent of our local artists. Supporting local charities such as Cranford Hospice is paramount for MCL, as we are aware of how many people have relied on their services in hard times, including our employees and clients.
