Welcome in an Arty Spring! Get your friends and family together for a weekend at the Mangawhai Art Trail.

Mangawhai comes alive as artists open their studios and galleries to the public. The Mangawhai Art Trail features something for everyone including: painting (oils, acrylics and pastels), ceramics, heirloom hand-crafted furniture, jewellery, one-off funky clothing, corrugated iron art, photography, pottery, printmaking, wood carving, sculpture (wood, soft stone, ceramics) and outdoor art.

Held over two days The Mangawhai Art Trail coincides this season with the changeover to Daylight Saving. Enjoy an evening stroll on the beach after viewing artwork by some of our most talented artists and craftspeople.

Bring the whole family or a group of friends. Stay the weekend - Mangawhai offers a range of accommodation services from campsites to four star luxury lodges. Mangawhai also offers many eateries, restaurants and cafes.

Over 40 artists are represented at over 10 different venues. across the Mangawhai region. A group exhibition will be hosted at Mangawhai's New Museum on Molesworth Drive.

As part of the Art Trail weekend and to celebrate the decision by Mangawhai Artists Inc to set up an Art Centre in Mangawhai Community Park there will be two fundraising events. Firstly an Art Tree will be set up adjacent to the new Museum where for a gold coin donation you can attach a coloured disk (and a message of goodwill) to the tree which will remain on site as a public art piece and an expression of good fortune to the Artists of Mangawhai. Also an Art Puzzle will be run over the weekend which will entail entrants (with a gold coin donation) from the public answering a series of questions related to an object of art displayed at some of the venues. An original piece of art has been donated as the winner's prize.

Entry to each venue is free. Studios and galleries are marked with ART signs and colourful flags. Maps will be available from the new Museum, Sail Rock Café, Mangawhai Information Centre.
