The Launch of the Tour and the opening of the Showcase exhibition, ‘Taste of the Tour’, features one work from each member will be held on Friday 6 March at 5.30pm at Hot Waves Café, Hot Water Beach. The Guest speaker is NZ artist, author and well known printmaker Carole Shepheard from Kawhia. This is an ideal opportunity to mingle with the artists, get a feel for the work on show and take an early opportunity to purchase their works. The launch is a significant event on the Peninsula calendar and is sold out well before. Tickets will be on sale through the Art Escape website from mid-December. This popular exhibition runs through to Easter Monday 6 April.

Included in the exhibition will be work from the inaugural Mercury Bay Art Escape Trust Scholarship winners Cosette O’Connell and Caitlin Stoyel-Wiggens. The Scholarship programme, a new initiative of the Trust introduced in 2013, is in it’s second year and is awarded to a Mercury Bay Area School top year-12 student who is keen to pursue a creative career, or shows serious promise within the Arts. The 6 month scholarship, that is tailored to suit the specific requirements of each recipient, gives support and encouragement, allowing them to progress to the next level of professional artistic development.
