The 33rd annual Bay Art competition and exhibition returns!
Bay Art is long standing tradition in Golden Bay, it's a celebration of creativity and community, an opportunity for creativity and ingenuity to thrive. We encourage everyone to stretch their skills and imagination, to have a go.
Some 10 years ago or so, Young@art was started by locals who felt our younger artists also needed a platform to exhibit their work. Now, Bay Art and Young@art have come together. We love it that way, and Golden Bay has resoundingly agreed!
Bay Art is in 7 categories, including Fibre art, 3D, 3D miniature, photography, digital art, and 2D, entrants can choose whether to enter the competition or just to exhibit. Everyone entered can sell their pieces, including the Young artists.
Entry is by donation, all welcome. Everyone attending can vote for their favourite piece to win the 'people's choice award', given at the closing of the exhibition.
