Mairangi Arts Centre Passionate About Art!

At Mairangi Arts Centre our exhibitions and class programme for November reflect the energy, enthusiasm
and upbeat atmosphere of summer.

Passionate About Pastels Exhibition
– 7th until 21st November

The month begins in our gallery with Passionate About Pastels exhibition. This is a vibrant display of artworks created by pastel artists from around New Zealand. The artists compete for prizes kindly sponsored by Gordon Harris the Art and Graphic Store, Factory Frames, Takapuna Art Supplies and Mainart. With such good incentives the exhibition attracts interesting, quality artworks that are well worth a look.

‘Kids in Space’ Exhibition
– 26th November until December 1st

‘Kids in Space’ exhibition will be an opportunity for Mairangi Arts Centre’s youngest artists to shine. During term classes and the school holiday programme our students (aged 5-17) have been honing their skills and busily creating works of art that will take pride of place in our Main and Hewson Galleries. This will be a great opportunity for everyone to see what our young artists are able to achieve.

Mairangi Arts Centre’s Young Artists’ Club members receive many benefits such as discounts on their art classes and at a variety of art suppliers and framers, their own monthly newsletter, and of course are able to have their work displayed in our annual young artists’ exhibition. Membership costs just $17 for 12 months.
