Tickets now on sale for the S.O.S Auction Night

The New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts was established in 1882 and is one of the country’s longest serving arts institutions. Over the years the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts has had highs and lows. As a self-funded organisation the institution has had to adapt in changing times to ensure its survival. What has remained over the years is the support the Academy has offered to many artists. Artists such as Evelyn Page, William Sutton, John Drawbridge, Doris Lusk, Mirek Smisek, Dame Rangimarie Hetet, Robyn Kahukiwa, Doreen Blumhart, Avis Higgs and Peter McIntyre have been a part of the Academy’s history and have made major contributions to New Zealand art history.

The Academy Galleries is holding a fundraising exhibition and has had donations from the following artists: Fraser Hoffe, Vivian Manthel - French, Michael Browne, Ruth Gardiner, Peter Augustin, Peter Muller, Cindy Flook, Kirsty Fyfe, Susan Hurrell - Fieldes, Anna Ivanovska, Anna Ivanovska, Jeanne Macaskill, Fredericka Ernsten, Lee Robinson, Miranda Woollett, Larrise Hall, Mary Thum, Jenny Shearer, Dorothy Helyer, Wendy Masters, Paul Collins, Mike Aamodt, Ian Hamlin, Alison Boyce, Frances Hanson Anthea Crozie, Robyn Taylor, Ellen Hodgetts, Syd Moore, Beryl Buchanan, Maas Huub, Di Conway, Michelle Retimana, Penny Harrison, Brian Carmody, Mia Hamilton and Sue Shore.

The exhibition features painting, photography, ceramics, jewellery and sculpture and is available for viewing from Saturday 22 March at the Academy Galleries, 1 Queens Wharf, Wellington.

The artworks will be auctioned on Friday 4 April from 6 pm onwards. Tickets for S.O.S Auction Night are available for purchase at the Academy Galleries.
