Welcome to Arts Canterbury
Arts Canterbury are proud to present a Juried exhibition at The Mill in Waikuku that will be open to the public from the 28th Nov – 6th Dec, open daily 10am-4pm. Paul and Jeni Sanderson, owners of The Mill located at 1473 Main North Road, Waikuku, are looking forward to hosting Arts Canterbury for the first time.
Members of Arts Canterbury were encouraged to submit their best artworks for this juried exhibition. From those submissions artworks were selected by three independent jurors – Warren Feeney, Joel Hart and Brent Firkin. 30 Arts Canterbury members (Including 11 North Canterbury artists) have been selected to exhibit 48 artworks in a range of styles, sizes and mediums including oil paintings, ceramics, linocut prints on teabags and more.
