Calling all artists in Waimakariri! The Virtual Kaiapoi Art Expo provides a welcome opportunity to Waimakariri artists to display and sell their work. In conjunction with the Waimak App, the Waimakariri Arts Trust has produced a user friendly online method for artists whose work is usually exhibited in the Kaiapoi Art Expo. Download the Waimak app for information on how to submit your art and how to access the exhibition.
“I’m hoping the public will respond to this idea and help support our artists,” says Jackie. “The thousands that turn up to the event every year spend over $30,000 buying local art and the cancellation of the 2020 Expo will obviously impact on many artists’ incomes, as will the many other art events and outlets such as galleries that have been closed during this lockdown,” says Jackie.
