Arts Lease Programme - attention local artists

Thursday, October 06, 2011

The South Taranaki District Council calls for artwork submissions from local artists for lease and display in the foyer gallery within Council’s administration building in Hawera.  The Art Lease Programme was established in 1996 to support and nurture our creative community.  The gallery enables us to showcase a selection of work from our talented artists and creates an opportunity for participants to exhibit to a wide audience and offer their work for sale.

To qualify for the Art Lease Programme, artists must reside within the South Taranaki district boundaries.

Both wall hanging and sculptural artworks are considered. 

Selected artists are paid a lease fee of $150.00 for a year lease, paid in November.  To submit artworks for consideration, please include the following information:

•             Your name, address, daytime phone number and email address.

•             A clear photograph of the artwork(s)

•             Dimensions, medium and date of artwork(s)

Send to:  Michaela Stoneman, Arts Co-ordinator, South Taranaki District Council, Private Bag 902, Hawera 4640,

or drop in to the Albion Street office – Attention:  Michaela Stoneman

Closing date for submissions is 5.00 pm Monday 10 October 2011.
