The Art Party of the Year:


The four-day event is preceded by the highly anticipated gala evening, an occasion not to be missed and one of the highlights on Wellington's social calendar.

Since 2006, it has been at full capacity with over 1,200 guests attending each year and it’s always a great night out. Delicious food, fine wine and live entertainment guarantee a fun evening for all and guests are free to purchase artworks on the night before doors open to the public.

This is the perfect setting for the business community and art lovers to come together with artists in a social occasion: an evening full of fun, conversation, networking and art buying!

The gala evening is reserved primarily for Friends and Partners of the show: there are a limited number of tickets available for sale, $120 each, no door sales.
