Gala Evening - Mercury Bay Art Escape

Thursday, 1 April 2021 - 6:00pm

The Gala Opening kicks off the annual Art Escape Open Studios and Showcase exhibition and is a highlight on the Coromandel arts scene. It is a chance to meet the artists, mingle with other art lovers, purchase art and is your exclusive preview to our Member's Showcase Exhibition.

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

The guest speaker Di Tocker, is one of New Zealand’s premier cast glass sculptors and of multiple award winner.

Di discovered her love of glass at the early age of 18 and that lead to a career in design. Using the lost-wax casting technique she works full time in her purpose-built studio in Cambridge.

As well as being a highly respected artist Di is also an engaging and entertaining speaker.  She will also be offering one of her pieces for auction on the night.

Hot Water Beach Top 10 Holiday Park is an ideal place to stay during the Mercury Bay Art Escape as it is right next to the Gala Opening and close to the majority of the participating artists
