Resene is proud to be supporting the 17th annual NZ Art Show - this year with a twist! More than 150 emerging contemporary artists are set to inspire any art collector in this dynamic virtual exhibition.

This new initiative is the brainchild of the show as it embraces the opportunity to continue to support some of NZ’s hottest new artists on the art scene despite the limitations of Covid-19 lockdown.

All artists have been selected by a panel of experts, promising quality and talent deserved of any collection. Art lovers can be assured that they can purchase with confidence, liaising directly with the artists.

Visitors can explore new artworks by some of the show’s favourite and most successful artists including Jane Blackmore, Runa + Holly, Tanya Blong, Joel Hart and Nikki Corbishley while discovering the hottest and newest artists on the NZ Arts scene. Glass works by the talented Richard Landers (a crowd favourite at last year’s show) also feature, alongside contemporary photographic works, exquisite and traditional watercolours, gorgeous florals, and artworks that provoke thought and conversation.

Go to artshow.co.nz where you can browse and purchase hundreds of original artworks all from the comfort of your own home from May 1st. Show your support and help keep the arts alive and active in NZ!
