Raglan Arts Weekend will once again return to Raglan over the Auckland Anniversary Weekend (Saturday 27 January to Monday 29 January 2018) and local artists are now invited to register for the event.

As well as the weekend event, artists registering will be included within the new 2018 Raglan Arts Trail Guide, which will be launched 1st December of 2017.

Running every year since 2009, this well-organised weekend is a much-anticipated fixture on the Raglan summer calendar and a wonderful opportunity to show your work to a wide and appreciative audience. The event is marketed extensively throughout the North Island and draws hundreds of arts lovers from both the local and wider area, many of whom book the weekend into their diaries many months in advance.

Artists who took part in the 2017 event reported that as well as helping them sell their work, the weekend also enabled them to gain valuable feedback from art lovers and offered numerous networking opportunities.

If you are a local artist and expect to have new work available by January, there are two ways you can take part:

  1. Exhibit from your studio, workshop or home.
  2. Exhibit from an inside space at the Old School Arts Centre (only four spaces available, so register early if you would like to secure one of these slots).

To give participating artists even more exposure, the 2017 event included a successful exhibition held at the Old School which ran for 6 weeks over the busy summer period leading up to the Raglan Arts Weekend.

If you’d like to be listed as an artist in the Raglan Arts Guide for 2018 and be a part of Raglan Arts Weekend 2018, contact the Old School at info@raglanartscentre.co.nz, or call 07 825 0023.

Full registration is $150 – but sign up before 31 July 2017 and receive a special early bird rate of $130.  All registrations must be received by 31 August.
