The Christchurch Art Show would like to thank the people of Canterbury for a very successful first art show! Thousands of you came out to buy and view amazing art from all over New Zealand. Many thanks to our judge David Woodings who invested his precious time and knowledge in selecting the final eleven works for the art awards. And of course a big thank you to all the artists involved – from Canterbury and from far and wide all over New Zealand who supported us and brought their works to the show.                                        

The 2014 show generated 600 artworks sold at an average of $500 each with well over 5000 people attending the show. This first show has given us a basis to establish a bigger and brighter show for 2015.   

The Christchurch Art Show was a fun event, a chance to meet and network with others, an amazing sight and an ice breaker for the Christchurch art scene. We hope to have you back again with us next year.
