Taranaki Arts Trail Exhibition

Thursday 28 May – Saturday 20 June 2020



Percy Thomson Gallery is hosting the 2020 Taranaki Arts Trail exhibition. 

The Taranaki Arts Trail has been postponed due Covid-19 restrictions and will now be part of the Taranaki Garden Festival events, 30/31 October and 1 November.

Due to our full programme of exhibitions this year we were unable to accommodate the Arts Trail in its new October time-slot.

The exhibition features one piece of work from most of the registered artists on the Trail.

It is an excellent opportunity for Trail visitors to view each artist’s work to decide which studios they would like to visit later in the year. All artwork is for sale.

During the Taranaki Arts Trail in October visitors will be treated to an up-close and personal experience. Whether it’s a purpose-built studio, workshop or dining room table, the artist’s space is open to anyone who wants to lift the lid on how all types of art is created. Some ‘old’ faces are returning to the Trail this year and there are a number of artistic newbies who will stir the mix.

There is a refreshingly broad spectrum of career stages, from the emerging artist through to the established and world-renowned, using all manner of methods and materials. Visitors will see some finished works and can also investigate the artistic process; material, vision, philosophy etc.
Right around the mountain there are so many studios to discover, and if last year is anything to go by, it will be hard to pick a favourite. Visitors can lap up the majestic scenery as they hop from studio to studio on their voyage of artistic discovery, enjoying the warm hospitality that Taranaki folk are famous for.

Admission is free to the studios / workshops.
