Artworks - A Celebration of New Zealand Art 

Works from more than 100 New Zealand artists will be on show at the event, including the unique ‘Treasures’ collection, an assortment of never seen before drawings and sketches from renowned New Zealand artists including Dick Frizzell, Bill Hammond, Dame Louise Henderson and Max Gimblett. 

Members of the public can attend the exhibition by purchasing a $20 ticket that gives them multiple entry to Artworks.

The annual Artworks Exhibitions are organised by the Rotary Club of Ellerslie Sunrise Inc and have raised more than $1.1 million for charity on top of providing New Zealand artists with over $1.7 million of income. 

This year a VIP gala opening and a range of master classes will also be held for art lovers on a range of specialist topics. 

The charity proceeds from all Artworks Exhibition sales will go to the Auckland Medical Research Foundation whose mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of all New Zealanders and future generations, the Pindrop Foundation which helps New Zealanders suffering with hearing loss, and local Rotary projects.
