Seeking artworks of all shapes and sizes for our indoor exhibition

Applications are now open for Expressions of Interest to be submitted for works for the indoor gallery.

This invitation is open to previous exhibitors and new artists who would like to be considered. The indoor gallery focus is to provide a diverse offering of high-quality artworks at affordable price points, with the aim of raising funds for Women’s Refuge New Zealand to support victims of domestic violence.

The final date for submissions is 10th September 2021.

Call for volunteers

NZ Sculpture OnShore relies on hundreds of volunteers to help setup the event from 19 October, during the event from 30 October to 14 November and also during packdown on 15-16 November. We couldn’t run the event without you! 

Volunteers are largely the public face of the event; providing information, sharing their experience of the art works and helping make visitors experience a great day out.

You can volunteer as a group with friends, or are you a company that would like your staff to get involved with community service days?

A message from our Gold Sponsor 

We couldn’t run the exhibition without the generosity of sponsors including Perpetual Guardian. 

This message of encouragement from CEO Patrick Gamble is indicative of their commitment. 

“We are fortunate to look after the legacies of many Kiwis, and we see daily how art and creativity is used as a vehicle to convey important messages and support diverse communities. 

Art can convey powerful messages; the work of many local and international artists has a long-lasting effect on how we engage with important issues and the actions we take to create positive change. To us, this is inextricably linked with what we do and stand for as an organisation as we aim to empower our clients to grow their wealth and leave a lasting legacy that creates a better future for all.

At Perpetual Guardian we believe in equal opportunity and choice. We believe that every Kiwi should take control of their financial future through well-structured estate plan, and we are grateful to those that entrust their wishes and legacies to us.

There is a natural connection between art, community and positive change. We are committed to doing our part by supporting initiatives such as NZ Sculpture OnShore, which is a powerful platform providing direct support to the important work of the Women’s Refuge.”
