Welcome to our 4th year of showcasing and selling fabulous art as a fundraiser for South Wellington Intermediate School (SWIS). We are excited to share with you our new logo designed right here in Wellington and our new name that reflects the community we so love being a part of, formerly called the SWIS Art Show we are now the South Wellington Art Show.

South Wellington Intermediate School is a vibrant intermediate school on Wellington’s south coast. Like all schools, we need to raise additional funds to enhance our children's learning environment. For the past three years, through the generous support of artists like you and Wellingtonians who bought their work, we have held very successful art shows that have raised significant funds for the school.  

Funds raised from this years art show will go towards the purchase of bleachers (tiered rows of benches) for the new dedicated drama space. Drama has always been offered to the students of SWIS, but this year for the first time SWIS is able to offer a dedicated drama teacher and drama space for it’s students. The bleachers will enable students to perform in front of other students and the community as though they are in a real theatre environment.   

Please join us in being part of something great for our tamariki.

The South Wellington Art Show is an annual, curated event featuring a range of artists who work in a variety of mediums. In previous years the call for artists has been nationwide. This year we are turning our focus on the Wellington art community and promoting artists that are creating works in this amazing little Capital of ours.

One of the key differences about the South Wellington Art Show is that we also feature the artwork of a cross section of the students who currently attend SWIS. They exhibit and sell their work alongside all the other artists and is a great learning opportunity for them and hugely inspiring to all our young artists.

This year we are inviting artists at all points in their careers;  studying, emerging, established and everything in-between to submit work for consideration in the show.
It is a great opportunity to show and sell your work, foster creativity in the community, and reach new audiences.

The South Wellington Art Show features    

  • An opening-night gala – a catered and ticketed event that sells out and this year it is sponsored by Wellington businesses. 
  • Promotion of individual artists through Facebook and Instagram

  • Open over the whole weekend to maximise reach and sales

  • 70% of the sale price to the artist for each work sold.

  • 1 x ticket to opening night gala including a glass of award winning Greystone wine

What are we looking for?
Exciting and current works suitable for exhibition and sale from artists working in most mediums (no sound or video art).
If you have exhibited and sold well with us before history has shown us that you will need to show new and fresh work for another successful show.
Works that have been previously submitted to the South Wellington Art Show will not be considered, and preference will be given to current works.
