For the first time ever take the opportunity to come and chat with some of the artists that had works chosen for the Rotorua Museum Art Awards 2017 Exhibition of Finalists.

On Sunday 24 September 2017 between 2pm – 3.30pm, selected artists have been invited to be in the gallery and answer questions about their artworks. Learn more about the creation and story behind some of these amazing pieces from the artists themselves.

The exhibition showcases judge, Emma Bugden, selected works from the 152 entered in this year’s competition. The finalist exhibition will be on display at Sir Howard Morrison Performing Arts Centre from 9 September until 6 October 2017 (10am – 4pm).

While the exhibition is on display people can vote for their favourite artwork either in the gallery or via the Rotorua Museum Facebook page. This year the More FM People’s Choice Award will offer $500 to the artist whose work receives the most public votes in the gallery and $500 for the work with the most online votes by the end of the exhibition (6 October 2017).

Entry to both the event and exhibition are free. The 2017 awards are sponsored by Rotorua Energy Charitable Trust, the Friends of Rotorua Museum, Toi Ohomai and More FM.
