The 2015 Opening Night!

The Christchurch Art Show Opening Night 2015 was a huge success. Some 750 art lovers attended this event and had the first pick of the original NZ art on show. Guests were also treated to the sounds of Katie Thompson while enjoying Lawson’s Dry Hill wines, canapés and Whitestone cheeses. Christchurch’s largest art show has maintained its goals of becoming an art show for the people with the catch phrase of ‘Art for everyone’ the show strives to do just that. A wide selection of art from all over NZ was on exhibition and with a public willing to go, view and buy the 2017 event will be something to look forward to!
