20 – 23 June 2019
Christchurch Air Force Museum
The Christchurch Art Show returns for its sixth year! Hundreds of artists and thousands of artworks under one roof this June. If you love art this event is not to be missed! Our event begins with a presale Opening Night on Thursday 20th June, followed by 3 show days open to the Christchurch Public. Tickets go on sale April 1st. For more information about ticket sales click here.
Arts Canterbury executive wants to continue to provide opportunities for our artist members. One of the initiatives we have planned for 2019 is in conjunction with the Christchurch Art Show. We are providing the opportunity for members who have never exhibited at this show. We are aware that costs, managing panels, time commitments etc can all be deterrents in preventing artists from taking part.
Therefore we would like to give artists who have never exhibited at this event (and did not have works on the Arts Canterbury panels at the 2018 CHCH Art Show) the opportunity to submit one painting for sale at this event. Arts Canterbury will manage the panels but will encourage those selected to be rostered there to assist with the selling process, talk to other artists, distribute the new 2019/20 Arts Guide and become familiar with this event. We are paying for 4 panels which will enable several Arts Canterbury members to take part. The Art Show will provide free tickets to those assisting. Their commission is 25% for sold items.
Part of the agreement with the Christchurch Art Show is that works are juried to provide a consistency with other works. This will be undertaken by members of the executive.
If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity then please read carefully the conditions and send an entry form and digital image by 1st May to Mandy Palmer at firstname.lastname@example.org with “AC CHCH Art Show Submission” in the subject line.
