Our Mission Statement
‚ÄãTo provide the vehicle to support, promote and nurture creativity of all art forms in our community.
To enable Artists into achieve their inherent potential.
To foster universal appreciation of art.
The Mangawhai Artists Association began in 2002 and was headed by Joy Agar and Sue Blinco. Local artists staged an annual art trail in conjunction with the Mangawhai Walking Weekend held in early autumn. Since then the group has evolved into a much larger group run by a committee of volunteers, and is now registered as an Incorporated Society with a current membership of around 110 in 2017.
We have continued to hold an art trail each year, for two days over Easter Weekend.
We have established our own gallery in the centre of Mangawhai Village at 45 Moir Street, Mangawhai, where we hold exhibitions of members’ work, and conduct highly successful teaching workshops (Learning Opportunities).
Currently our exhibition season is October to May, and our Learning Opportunities season is June to September.
In conjunction with the Kaipara Lifestyler and Dargaville Arts Association we also host the annual Kaipara Art Awards.
We have established a website which promotes the group’s activities and allows each member to have their own web page.
Our intention is to fully support the artistic community throughout the year in various ongoing events and to help promote Mangawhai as a vibrant artistic region.
Our group represents a wide range of artists from the professional level to the hobby painter. It is our intention to promote each and every individual to their chosen level, whilst also providing a supportive technical and social network. We welcome new members.
