MBAE Gala Opening

Friday 6 March at 6pm

At Hot Waves Café, Hot Water Beach

Tickets only $45


The Gala Opening of the 2020 Mercury Bay Art Escape is a wonderful social evening of art not to be missed. 


Our special guest speaker is Peter Lange, one of New Zealand's leading ceramic artists and a renowned public speaker. Peter will be auctioning one of his wonderful ceramics on the evening with a proportion of the funds going to the Art Escape.


We are doubly fortunate this year as our celebrated host of 2019, Fatu Feu'U, will be returning as a guest and will also have one of his beautiful works for auction on the night. 


We will have our exclusive preview to Mercury Bay Art Escape 'Member's Showcase' exhibition that features one new artwork by each of our member artists and art group members along with the High School Scholarship recipient.


This is a great opportunity for art lovers to have the chance to bid on works from two of New Zealand's most celebrated artists as well as buying new and unique works from our artist members in the Gala Showcase.


This art event includes a complimentary glass of Tohu Wines, hors d'oeuvres and live music by our guest band of the evening.


Tickets are now on sale at the Mercury Bay Art Escape website :
