Opening. 27th Annual Wallace Art Awards 2018
Archibalds and CoCA invite you to the public opening of the 27th Annual Wallace Art Awards 2018, the first time the awards exhibition has travelled to Christchurch in over twenty years.
Established in 1992, the annual Wallace Art Awards presents outstanding examples of contemporary New Zealand art. It is aimed to foster, honour and support the practices of visual artists, with a selection of the winning finalists' work added to the 9000-strong Wallace Art Trust Collection. The nationally touring exhibition features a number of Christchurch artists including Emma Fitts and Helen Calder.
Please join us to celebrate the opening of the exhibition and the unveiling of the Jaguar I-PACE, Jaguar's first all-electric performance SUV.
We are grateful for the generous support of Archibalds Motors Limited, our Principal Exhibition Sponsor.
Please note: this event is open to the public from 7pm onwards.
