Thank you all.

NZSoS 2016 | 10th-20th Nov | Devonport


 NZ Sculpture Onshore Expressions of Interest Now Closed




New Zealand Sculpture OnShore (NZSOS) expressions of interest for 2016 are now closed.  Our curators, Anna Hanson and Ross Liew are excited about the upcoming exhibition this year.

"We have had a high standard of proposals this year, showcasing the wonderful diversity of contemporary sculptural practice across Aotearoa. A great big thank you to all artists who have taken the time submit their proposals, it is shaping up to be another fantastic exhibition," says Anna and Ross.

"Ross and I are also open to still hearing from artists who may have missed the deadline, but are keen to be a part of this vibrant and iconic exhibition, so please do get in touch with the team at NZSoS," says Anna.

The success of NZ Sculpture OnShore has meant the exhibition has also become the principal fundraiser for Women’s Refuge, with the proceeds of the 2014 event topping $180,000. Since its’ inception, NZSOS has donated over $1.5 million to help the Refuge support victims of domestic violence.

Most of the works will be for sale and all proceeds from art sales will be donated to NZ Women’s Refuge.

Dr Ang Jury, CEO of Women’s Refuge says, “We’ve had over 20 years of ongoing support from Sculpture  OnShore, and we are absolutely excited to be a part of another event. The funds raised from this will make a huge difference to the 20,000 women and children in NZ that Women’s Refuge helps every year. “

New Zealand Sculpture OnShore 2016 opens on Thursday 10th November and runs until Sunday 20th November.

Located at the iconic and beautiful Fort Takapuna, Devonport, North Shore, Auckland.
