Meet local artists at your doorstep up close and personal.
Come to the Mahurangi Arts Trail this weekend from Waitangi on February 5, 6 and 7, then the following February 12 and 13 and visit over 40 artists in their studios and collective spaces.
This is a free family event. The Mahurangi Arts Trail hosts local artists from Dome Valley, Puhoi, Mahurangi West, Warkworth, Snells Beach, Matakana, Omaha, Tawharanui and Leigh, as well as Wellsford.
All you have to do is grab a map from your favorite local business or I-Site, or download a map from our Facebook page or website: and start planning your private art journey. Just follow the bunting.
This is your chance to meet the artists, up close and personal. Discuss, find out what inspires them and make them vibrate. Discover their practice and learn to better appreciate the art forms you admire. You will also have the option of directly purchasing works from them.
There is an eclectic range of local artists specializing in painting, printmaking, glass, sculpture, textiles, ceramics, jewellery, drawing, photography, illustration, fluid acrylic, watercolor , silk, leather and mixed media to name a few. So many choices.
Plan your own personal artistic journey and visit all the artists you are interested in or admire or meet someone new.
There is a chance to buy art, participate in art, watch demonstrations, try and learn about various styles, processes and techniques. So many different disciplines to choose from.
We hope you can do this and tell all your friends, take a day trip and plan your route, explore all that the Mahurangi region has to offer.
We look forward to seeing you at the 3rd Annual Mahurangi Artist Studio Trail.
