Following on from the out standing success of the previous annual collaborative art projects, the NZ Art Guild are officially unveiling their 2008 Collaborate Project,called "Reach Out", on July 1st 2008 at the Bruce Mason Centre, Takapuna, Auckland. This single artwork was created by 88 New Zealand artists forming an amazing piece of art.

This year the NZ Art Guild are using the exhibition and collaborative artwork to help the Mental Health Foundation of NZ to raise awareness and to enable individuals, whanau,organisations and communities to improve and sustain their mental health and realise their full potential. To further support this initiative the NZ Art Guild are donating 20% of the proceeds from the sale of "Reach Out" to the Mental Health Foundation of NZ.

This awe-inspiring artwork, has been compiled of 90 individual wood panels, hand painted by 88 NZ artists from around New Zealand. These have been combined together on a large wooden frame resulting in a uniquely original, single artwork with an underlying image.
Inspired by the phrase 'On Your Mind', each artwork is a slice of imagination from the minds of the artists.

The NZ Art Guild's 3rd Annual Exhibition 'Make it Memorable' will showcase artworks from 63 artists. Diversification is the key to this exhibition, with artworks varying in genre, style, medium and price.
