Swinging Art on High

Monday 22nd-Monday 29th June 2020

The Motueka Arts Council is inviting members of the community to join them for an exhibition designed to celebrate and showcase the incredible community that is Motueka and surrounds. Create a 3D work of art and it could be displayed along Motueka’s High Street this winter, to lighten up and brighten up our streets. It doesn’t matter if you consider yourself a fine artist, a folk artist, a dabbler or if you have two left thumbs, everyone, of any age, is invited and encouraged to contribute. Get together with friends, have a family art night, or make some quiet creation time for yourself.

Art helps with mental health and processing emotions, brings calm and clarity, and can just be pure fun.

Please note, there must also be a way to attach your artwork to a 3mm metal chain or shackle, which will be provided.
Collection of the entries will now take place on June 22 and 23, with the installation happening the following week.
