Artfully Yours - Art Hawke's Bay Exhibition 2020

Artfully Yours - Art Hawke's Bay Exhibition 2020

Artfully Yours, the 14th Art Hawke’s Bay Exhibition, is being held in a new venue – the Hastings Community Arts Centre in Russell St.

This allows for a much longer exhibition, from Opening Night on Monday 30 March until Saturday 11 April. The annual event brings together works by members of art groups throughout Hawke’s Bay in one combined selected exhibition, during which all entries are for sale.

John Brown is the art selector. He is currently living in Hawke’s Bay, after relocating from Auckland in 2013. He has been exhibiting since 1996, both internationally and nationally. In 2012 John won the Kaipara Wallace Arts Trust Award, and in 2019 won the Molly Morpeth Canaday Art Award.

John will give a floor talk at the exhibition on Friday 3 April at 11am. John will also hold a free workshop / tutorial during the exhibition, at the Hastings City Art Gallery, on Saturday 4 April, 10am-2pm. Numbers are limited to 10 for this.

The sculpture selector is Susan Mabin who lives in Napier and is a multimedia artist working in installation, sculpture, painting and photography. Susan graduated from Ideaschool, Eastern Institute of Technology in 2018 with a Master of Professional Creative Practice, having completed a post graduate diploma in 2016 and her degree in 2014.

She has been a finalist in the NZ National Contemporary Art Award in 2016 and 2017, the Molly Morpeth 3D Canaday Award and the Adam Portraiture Award in 2018, and the Molly Morpeth Canaday Painting and Drawing award in 2019.

This year’s exhibition does not have a Hawke’s Bay theme as in the past. Artist still need to be members of a Hawke’s Bay art group or special members of Art Hawke’s Bay, however an exception is made for sculptors.

The art categories are: Land, Water, People, Abstract and Art Unlimited. There is also a Sculpture category. The winners of all these categories will receive prizes of $300 each. Twelve Hawke’s Bay secondary schools have entered works by one of their students in the Schools category, for a prize of $250. Additional prizes will be awarded for Best in Exhibition ($400), the People’s Choice Award, a Special Prize and a Best of the Backroom Prize.

Opening night, during which the awards will be presented, will be from 5pm on Monday 30 March. Entry for this event is $15.00 - with door sales available.

The exhibition is a non-profit event, funded mainly by local grant providers and sponsors. Art Hawke’s Bay is very appreciative of their generous support. More information is on and on Facebook @arthawkesbaynz
