The Friends of Rotorua Museum in partnership with Lockwood are delighted to offer artists the opportunity to be part of the first ever Bay of Plenty Artists Exhibition this year.
Friends of Rotorua Museum committee member, Jo-Anne La Grouw, notes that “with Covid-19 restrictions following the Rotorua Museum closure, Bay of Plenty artists have had a tough time recently with limited options in outlets for their works”.
Artists from the Bay of Plenty will be able to submit one piece of work and works will form an exhibition in the stunning new homes of Rotorua’s Lockwood Showhome Village.
All works will be available for purchase and prospective buyers will have the advantage of viewing the works they fall in love with in a home environment.
Conditions and Artist Submission Forms can be found here: BOP Artists Exhibition 2021 Conditions and Submission Form and need to be emailed to Julie.email@example.com by 5pm, 1 October 2021.
The Bay of Plenty Artists Exhibition will open with a private preview for artists and guests on Sunday 7 November 2021, then open to the public from 8 November – 12 December 2021, 10am – 4pm.
All commission proceeds from the sale of work will go to The Friends of the Museum for acquisition of new works or for funding Rotorua Museum special projects. In the past The Friends have been involved with projects to re-frame works, provide new protective covers for textiles and will soon commission two heritage style lights for the Museum foyer.
