The Gala Opening kicks off the annual Art Escape Open Studios and Showcase exhibition and is a highlight on the Coromandel arts scene. It is a chance to meet the artists, mingle with other art lovers, purchase art and is your exclusive preview to our Member's Showcase Exhibition.
The opening will be held on 5 March at Hot Waves Café, Hot Water Beach from 6pm. Tickets are available here. Be in quick as this event is a sell out each year.
This art event includes a complementary glass of wine, hors d'oeuvres and live music by our guest band of the evening.
The guest speaker Di Tocker, is one of New Zealand’s premier cast glass sculptors and multiple award winner.
Di discovered her love of glass at the early age of 18 and that lead to a career in design. Using the lost-wax casting technique she works full time in her purpose-built studio in Cambridge.
As well as being a highly respected artist Di is also an engaging and entertaining speaker. She will also be offering one of her pieces for auction on the night.
We will also be auctioning works from our patron Fatu Feu'u and from Kevin Judd, owner of Greywacke wines.
Our guest wine is Greywacke from Marlborough who will have 4 wines on offer from their vineyard.
