ANNUAL COMMUNITY ART COMPETITION AND EXHIBITION

Arts for Health as part of its community service hosts an annual art competition and exhibition. The purpose of this event is to develop a healthy and vibrant community using the creative arts, and to build wider community partnerships.  This event is open to all members of the community and is our major fundraising event.

Arts for Health has been offering an annual community exhibition since 2013.  This has only been possible through the generous support of our supporters and sponsors.  These competitions have attracted a great number of entries each year, with a fabulous Opening Night and announcement of winners and presentation of prizes.  Judging is undertaken by David Lloyd and he is supported by two guest judges. This event is held at David Lloyd Gallery in Lake Crescent, Hamilton.  

The Exhibition Opening and announcement of winners is held on Friday evening and the exhibition is open to the public for viewing and purchasing of artworks on Saturday and Sunday from 1pm to 4pm.    

There are two categories - Adults section and Students section.  To enter in the Students section you must be aged 18 and under.  There is also a People's Choice award and Merit awards.

All artworks are for sale.
