Submit to the 2015/16 Arts Lease Programme

Monday, September 21, 2015

The South Taranaki District Council calls for artwork submissions from local artists for lease and display in the foyer gallery in the 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. Some changes are soon to be made to this area due to security issues. Public access will be limited but artworks can still be viewed by request at the customer service desk.

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 for a year lease, which is 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 and attention to M. Stoneman) or send via email.

    Closing date for submissions is Monday 5 October 2015 5.00 pm

    For more information, please phone Michaela on 0800 111 323 or email: michaela.stoneman@stdc.govt.nz
