Entries close this week for one of the region’s most popular art fundraisers.
The Great Summer Art Exhibition at Snells Beach will run from Friday, December 27 to Monday, December 30 at the Mahurangi East Community Hall.
New this year is a separate photography section with an overall cash prize of $200, which joins the established professional, intermediate and novice categories, entries for all of which must be registered by Wednesday, December 4.
All the artworks in this, the 26th Great Summer Art Exhibition, will be for sale, with 20 per cent of the proceeds and all entry fees going to event organiser Mahurangi East Tennis Club.
Cash prizes totalling more than $3000 are up for grabs for the exhibition, which regularly attracts several hundred works of art.
