New Owners

for Old Masters

Following a similar initiative in Auckland, NSAS is holding an exhibition, Pre-Loved Re-loved, of pre-owned artworks. Do you have art in the house in good condition that you are no longer fond of but can't just throw away because of its value? Next June you'll have a chance to put it up for sale.

You may submit 2D and 3D art, photographs, ceramics, ethnic art, etc. but note that this is not a junk, junque, souvenir or antique sale. All submissions will be vetted and NSAS will take a 30% commission. The onus is on the seller to pass a 5% royalty fee to the artist on sales over $1,000.

Start thinking now about what you don't want any more, or about creating an acquisition budget! More details in the February newsletter.

Calling all Water-colourists

In 2018 Barbara Morrison, a watercolourist and lifetime member of NSAS, generously bequeathed us a sum of money to be used as needed by the society. In her honour it has been decided to hold a one-off exhibition exclusively for watercolours in July 2021. This will be a platform for all  member watercolourists to show the calibre of their skills and the subtlety of their art. If you work in other media but have always thought about trying watercolour, this exhibition is a target to shoot for. As always, submissions will be subject to a selection process. Further details in February.
