The Napier Mail - - FRONT PAGE -

Napier Girls’ High School’s third an­nual Af­ford­able Art Ex­hi­bi­tion has raised more than $28,000.

The event in March fea­tured art­work pro­duced by 60 pro­fes­sional artists from around New Zealand, along with stu­dents.

Each piece was priced at $1000 or less.

This year saw the in­tro­duc­tion of a pop-up gallery of art­work on sale for un­der $150, more pro­fes­sional artists in­volved over­all, a re­turn of the pop­u­lar pop-up cafe and a se­lec­tion of raf­fles.

Prin­ci­pal Dawn Ack­royd said the three-day fundraiser was a re­sound­ing suc­cess.

‘‘It was a great op­por­tu­nity to in­vite the com­mu­nity into our school to en­joy the im­pres­sive art work on dis­play.’’

The ex­hi­bi­tion not only ben­e­fited the school and the wider com­mu­nity, it pro­vid­ing stu­dents with a range of real-life ‘‘be­hindthe-scenes’’ ex­pe­ri­ences.

Com­bined with the two pre­vi­ous ex­hi­bi­tions the events have raised nearly $80,000 for the school.

Plan­ning for next year’s Af­ford­able Art Ex­hi­bi­tion is al­ready un­der way.
