About

ArtWest is a community art exhibition and art sale, each year showcasing over 60 West Auckland artists and makers. Established in 2009 it is an unique event that collectively celebrates and honours the strength and diversity of arts practised in our communities, in an environment that is accessible to a broad audience.   Accompanied by workshops, performances, talks and more.

“At Kelston Girls’ College we believe strong arts in communities is a cause for celebration!”  – Sarah Stenson, Principal at Kelston Girls’ College
