Welcome to the 5th year of showcasing and selling fabulous art as a fundraiser for South Wellington Intermediate School (SWIS). 

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 four 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 supporting the arts at South Wellington Intermediate.

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. We are primarily calling for artists in the Wellington region and are hoping to showcase the creativity, skill and diversity of works that come out of our community.

One of the key differences about the South Wellington Art Show is that we also feature the artwork from a cross section of students who currently attend SWIS. They exhibit and sell their work alongside the other artists. This is a great learning opportunity for them and hugely inspiring to all our young artists. 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 sponsored, catered and ticketed event that sells out.
  • Promotion of individual artists through Facebook and Instagram.
  • Open over the whole weekend to maximise reach and sales.
  • 70% of the sale price goes to the artist for each work sold.
  • A ticket to opening night gala including a complimentary drink.


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.
