This month we have our fabulous CALENDAR COMPETITON Exhibition!
Each year we hold a competition open to all our N.S.A. Members who would like to try to win one of the places in next years’ Calendar. We invite two judges to pick their top 12 artworks with the top three receiving cash prizes. We then make the artwork into a Calendar available to view or purchase from the Art Gallery.
This year we received a stunning 93 entries, of which are all now on display around Reyburn House. At the opening night for the Exhibition the President of the N.S.A., Rod Cunliffe along with one of our judges, Hinu from Creative Northland, announced the lucky winners.
Make sure to pop in to see the artwork and vote for your favourite to claim the one last prize, the “Peoples’ Choice Award”. Which ever artwork receives the most votes will be announced at the end of the exhibition.
Exhibition ends: Sunday 29 August
