Youth Art Showcase
Mangawhai Artists' community project 'Youth Art Showcase' is an on-line exhibition of artworks from young people in our wider community.
We have five age categories from 4 years to 20 years old.
Our aim is to stimulate and support creativity and art among young families and youth in our community and surrounding areas.
Fantastic art packs from The French Art Shop will be awarded to 20 of the entrants.
We want your artwork now!
Follow THIS LINK to enter and to see the art.
Beautiful New Zealand scenery and over a hundred talented artists inspired by their environment! The Mangawhai area inspires painters and photographers, mosaic, ceramic, wood and glass artists, sculptors, jewellery makers, weavers and many other artists.
You can see their work in exhibitions organised by Mangawhai Artists Inc at our Gallery at 45 Moir Street, at local studios by appointment, as well as in our Easter Art Trail. Art and creativity are among the special features of Mangawhai, where you can also enjoy Bennetts Chocolatier and Cafe, the modern Mangawhai Museum, vineyards, cafes, tavern, restaurants, beaches and many walks.
The Gallery is located at 45 Moir Street, Mangawhai, next door to the Mangawhai Library Hall and almost opposite Bennetts café and Chocolatier.
