During our show days we encourage you to demonstrate your skills to the public as part of our ethos of 'Art for Everyone'. This is very popular with the viewing public.

Art Shows Across Aotearoa are seeking applications from sculptors whose work comes into the scaled-up category . . . for all our show locations. With SCALED-UP SCULPTURES we are filling a gap that our customers have been asking us about. We are keen to have more large sculptural works on display in the great new venues that we are using in 2024.
With our new price range of under $200 to over $20,000 there is no price limit on SCALED-UP SCULPTURES, we do suggest that you keep your buyers in mind when pricing your work. If you have images available of your SCALED-UP SCULPTURES or of yourself at work in your forge or your shed out the back, then do send your images to us to be included in pre-show promotions.
SCALED-UP SCULPTURES will partner well with our large art SIGNATURE PIECE paintings at all our shows throughout 2024. We have had a very positive response from artists who would like to submit large paintings. SIGNATURE PIECE paintings will generally exceed 1500mm x 1500mm in size and will be selected from submissions made by painters already signed up to exhibit at all our art shows.
We now need applications from sculptors who will have large works available for the Show dates above.
Applications can be made via the various locations or if you have any questions regarding access, delivery and bumping-out or anything else not covered off on the application form, then please contact John here.
