It's exhibition time again for Tauranga Society of Artists. TSA is the largest group of vibrant artists in the Bay and comprises some 200 members, who participate in a wide range of art genres and mediums, producing an astounding variety of original artwork.
Following on from the very successful Original Art Expo in Oct 2019, the society are hosting their most prestigious exhibition of the year including the Trustpower Supreme Award. Some 300 paintings were on display at that Expo and it is anticipated there will be a similar number in the 2020 Oct Expo. A very special collection of original art to view and purchase.
This expo introduces some interesting initiatives:
- People's choice award: This was won by Natalya Dougell in 2019. This gives visitors to the exhibition the opportunity to vote for their favorite painting, and was very popular with everyone.
- Tiny art: For the first time there will be a Tiny Art section where artists enter up to 3 miniature artworks (no larger than 22.5cm2) Its a bit of fun and these artworks have a price cap of $150 so makes for special economical original artwork for art hunters.
- Live art: There will be artists working on artwork live , so visitors can see art in action. Artists will work in different mediums e.g. oils, watercolour, acrylic. We may even see some live portraiture happening.
We love to show off some of our many talented artists, perhaps inspire visitors to take up some sort of art they may have wanted to do but not had the time or confidence to do. We welcome new members and have much to offer them, tutorials, open sessions, workshops and selling opportunities.
