Bay News - - Front Page -

Tau­ranga So­ci­ety of Artists are hav­ing their an­nual art ex­hi­bi­tion, with a com­pet­i­tive twist.

Therewill be about 300 works for dis­play and sale with a com­bined awards com­po­nent at the 2018 Art Expo in­clud­ing Trust­power Tau­ranga So­ci­ety of Artists (TSA) Supreme Awards.

Each artist can sub­mit five paint­ings to ex­hibit, and en­ter one paint­ing into the awards for judg­ing (by lo­cal artist Jenny Coker).

The event has been held for 14 years.

Ex­hi­bi­tion co-or­di­na­tor Berys Suridge says theirs is the largest ex­hi­bi­tion of lo­cal art in the Bay of Plenty.

It gives their 200 mem­bers the op­por­tu­nity to dis­play and sell their­work, she says, and allmedi­ums and styles will be on of­fer.

“The stan­dard of work is ex­cep­tion­ally high, we have some ex­cel­lent artists . . . the stan­dards are high but the prices are ex­tremely af­ford­able.”

Berys­would like to thank their spon­sors.
