Artists in Eden
An annual favourite and Auckland's longest-running outdoor art event!
Featuring around 40 working artists including Jeff Thomson, Nicky Foreman, Neal Palmer, Russell Jackson, Justin Boroughs and John Horner. Each artist produces an artwork "live" against the backdrop of the iconic Mt Eden, while the public have the chance to meet and chat to the artists as they work. The carnival atmosphere is enhanced by live music and children's entertainment - all within easy reach of Mt Eden's local cafes and shops. A fun day out for the whole family but the icing on the cake for art lovers is auction time at 2.30pm when all works produced earlier in the day are auctioned live. A great chance to take home a piece of art you watched being created, sometimes after an exciting bidding battle and sometimes for a bargain price...
This event will happen rain or shine - our rain venue is just across the street at the Mt Eden Village Centre on Ngauruhoe St, Mt Eden Village.
