This year at WSA 2018
NZPPA 2018 - Our annual NZ Painting and Printmaking Awards are coming up next week. We had over 260 entries from artists all around NZ and NZ residents overseas. This year the entries have been judged by Dianne Fogwell from Melbourne. Our awards evening is on Thursday, February 15th at 6pm and entry is only $10 each. This exhibition will only run for 3 days this year from February 16th to February 18th, so please make sure you come along and support our largest event for the year and all those Finalists involved.
Our Waiprint and National Youth Art Awards will again be exhibited from the 7th of September until the 8th of October, 2018. Please keep a look out for the entry details for both these exhibitions. Both these events are growing each year and nationally are well supported by artists
