The second annual Wainuiomata Art Exhibition is an opportunity for local artists to bring together and showcase their considerable talent.
Around 60 people from five years upwards who live, work or create in Wainuiomata will exhibit art in various media and styles.
Four categories will show off the work of primary school children, emerging artists from 13 to 20 years, adults and photography.
Terrific prizes for all categories have been donated by Memelink Artspace, The Learning Connexion and NZ Editions, and will enable the artists to further develop their work.
An overall popular vote will also run throughout the exhibition.
The organisers can see potential for the exhibition to be the first of many, and to lead to other developments like a strong arts community and a permanent space to work and/or exhibit.
