Winter Art Market


We are very excited to present another wonderful exhibition opportunity for NZSAG members.

The Winter Art Market is being held in conjunction with New Zealand’s largest national food and wine event – the ‘NZ Food Show’ – from July 29 to August 2, 2015.

The Market is located at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland and we are expecting the same large public exposure to our glass exhibition as with the Easter Show. We therefore encourage all members to plan and enter your work for this event as soon as possible.

For entry information, the detailed application form is attached.

The NZSAG Committee is looking forward to showcasing your fantastic glass artwork at this huge event.
