I've been trying to get to the Auckland Grammar Art Exhibition for a few years now, so it was exciting to join in on the opening night as an exhibitor.
The venue is stunning. The entire hall was floodlit, rather than lighting rigged up to spot-light the paintings, which gave the evening quite a surreal feel.
There was a great range of art on show, with a mixture of artists represented in many of these Auckland shows, and a few I haven't encountered previously. There were some watercolour artists that were new to me, others very extablished, and some work in watercolour and acrylic ink that really caught my eye.
This year NKB Gallery are involved, with a selection of work that will be auctioned on Saturday evening, adding another feature night to the weekend. Entry is free Saturday and Sunday.
Here are a couple of pics from the preview evening:
