ARTarama 2020 is a don’t miss event for those wanting to buy exceptional works of art donated by artists to raise money for Nurse Maude Hospice.
For 10 years ARTarama has been successfully adopted by both artists and the general public alike as a unique opportunity to showcase the talent of Canterbury artists while also raising money for charity.
This year, for the first time, it will also include sculptures and garden art.
The exhibition, which attracts a large and impressive line-up of established and emerging artists, has proved a must attend event for collectors and art lovers, allowing them to see and buy some of the best of New Zealand art.
Held at St Andrews College, ARTarama runs from October 9 to 11, starting with a function on Friday evening to launch the exhibition, preview the work and hold the art auction.
On Saturday and Sunday, the exhibition is open to the public and they too have the opportunity to buy art.
The last three ARTaramas, supported by Nurse Maude’s long-term sponsor, House of Travel, have seen a total of $60,000 raised by the Bishopdale Burnside Rotary for the hospice, making a significant contribution toward the cost of hospice care which Nurse Maude provides free of charge to its patients and their families.
Tickets for the Friday gala evening are $25 each and available by emailing
