Art enthusiasts will want to be part of the Celebrate Art! Weekend with Kauri Cliffs 26 – 29 April 2018, which includes a private tour of the intriguing Gibbs Farm sculpture property, set against the stunning backdrop of the Kaipara Harbour.
Exclusive backroom visits to two of Auckland’s best commercial galleries, Gow Langsford and Two Rooms, make this experience even better by providing a glimpse into the work of some top contemporary artists.
Adding to the relaxing weekend is a range of delicious food and wine, spa and golf in the stunning surrounds of The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs.
Arts talks from guest speakers Sue Gardiner and Rhana Devenport are engaging and inspiring, so guests can expect to be challenged and enthralled by their opinion on what is important, what is happening now, and what they need to know for the future of the art world.
Sue Gardiner is the co-director of the Chartwell Collection of New Zealand and Australian Contemporary Art, and she specialises in trans-Tasman art interests and exchanges.
Rhana Devenport, Director of the Auckland Art Gallery, will share her thoughts on New Zealand art within an international context.
