6-7pm Wed. 13 September

At the Academy Galleries on Wednesday 13 September, 5:30pm we had an exciting opportunity to hear Pedro Trueba speaking on his art and inspiration. Possibly the only chance to hear this extraordinary artist explain his motivations and technical approach. Described by the Mexican Ambassador as the pre-eminent living Mexican artist today, Pedro spoke and presented from 6pm for about 30-40 minutes before inviting questions. Light refreshments were be provided. Entry was free, but koha appreciated.

LightSpace Gallery

As we move to a firm programme of exhibitions in the main gallery, LightSpace Gallery becomes our venue for smaller exhibitions, individual artist hires and solo shows. We are offering 12-day hires giving two weekends – Wednesday through Sunday of the following week – at $160 per day including GST.

Shared between two artists, $80 per day for about 10m of gallery wall each is a cost-effective opportunity for artists to exhibit a group of works.

Contact Exhibitions@nzafa.com if you are interested in any of these dates.
