Ron Epskamp

Art Shows Across Aotearoa is delighted to announce Ron Epskamp the owner director of Exhibitions Gallery of Fine Art in the capital city as the Wellington Regional Judge for the recently established ASAA Gold Award for Art Excellence.

This national Award generously sponsored by Stuff Media has an overall value of $35,000+ and will be progressively adjudicated across four major Art Shows in four different New Zealand cities throughout 2024 culminating in the overall Gold Award Presentation to a single winner in November 2024.

Ron will be working with Lead Judge Karl Chitham from The Dowse one of New Zealand’s leading contemporary galleries and third Judge from Stuff Media at the Wellington Art Show at Takina Event Centre in April to select the second of the regional finalists to go through to the top four.

As the owner of Exhibitions Gallery of Fine Arts for eighteen years Ron brings a wealth of experience to the judging process - not only that gained in his own gallery during this period but also more than decade prior to this working in other galleries. Ron has also had significant experience contributing to art judging panels, to curating community projects and to facilitating touring exhibitions.

Ron has always been profoundly interested in artists and what informs their work. Now driven by a love of artwork and the artist’s ability to provoke Ron finds it a deeply rewarding experience to interpret those insights to such a wide range of different audiences.

Exhibitions Gallery’s newly acquired space in Wellington’s CBD is the culmination of Ron Epskamp’s long-held vision for a larger contemporary gallery that honours and celebrates the quality of art and artists represented - and cements the Gallery’s long-held position at the centre of the capital city’s arts environment.
