Artists Alliance Fundraiser - Behind the Scenes at Akepiro Studios
24 MONTHS AGO
We greatly appreciated your support in our 2016 Boosted campaign, we are very pleased to announce a new opportunity to help us raise critical funds for the great work we do here at Artists Alliance.
We are holding a fundraising event in the form of an open studio with artist Evan Woodruffe, at Akepiro Studios in Kingsland, Auckland.
The ticket price of $70 includes the chance to secure a work generously donated by Evan Woodruffe, specially created for this Artists Alliance fundraiser. Further raffle tickets will be available to purchase on the day ($10). Light refreshments will be served.
In 2016, Evan Woodruffe had four sell-out exhibitions, including in Melbourne, Beijing, and at the Auckland Art Fair. In September, he will present a giant fifteen square metre installation of paintings at Sydney Contemporary Art Fair. We have secured an exclusive look at this work as it nears completion at Akepiro Studios, with a conversation with the artist, and included in the ticket price, the chance to take home a work specially created for this Artists Alliance fundraiser.
With his next public shows booked for Hong Kong and Beijing in 2018, this is a rare chance to see Evan’s work in his home town.
Evan Woodruffe initiated Akepiro Studios in 2007, and today this light industrial space provides work space for fourteen artists.
The artists have painting and small sculpture practices, ranging from the serious beginner to seasoned professionals. Alongside Evan, current artists are Leigh Martin, Annamirl Hunter, Robert Frazer, Suzanne Laidlaw, Janelle Wills, Marcel Kalma, Paul Johnston, Sarah Cooper, Sarah Williams, Toby Raine, John Nicol, Roseline Klein, and Jack Cathro.
Some of these artists will also be present on July 8.
Tickets are $70, which includes an entry into the raffle, the winner will take home one of Evan's works!
