Visit Kerikeri and Enjoy Wonderful Art Exhibitors

Come and visit Kerikeri and all the exhibitors for the 2019 Kerikeri Open Art Studios Trail Labour Weekend, October 26, 27, & 28,  2019  

Beautiful regions and places have attracted and inspired artists for centuries, including Constable, Cezanne, van Gogh and of course Monet’s own gardens.  Kerikeri in the Bay of Islands, is well known for its stunning scenery, beautiful beaches, lovely walks and its citrus and kiwi fruit orchards. 

There’s so much more to this fascinating region with many New Zealand artists calling this lovely area home including painters, sculptors, jewellers, textile artists, ceramicists, photographers and many more. And the sixth upcoming KOAST is a wonderful vehicle for artists to promote themselves and for visitors and art collectors to enjoy their talent.

Visit Wonderful Artists in Beautiful Kerikeri

The Kerikeri Open Art Studios Trail offers visitors a wonderful artistic experience. Visiting artists and studios can really give a unique and interesting perspective on a place  and add greatly to its attraction. 

By guiding visitors to studios and galleries, KOAST helps artists to succeed at supporting themselves in their chosen profession, by growing their  customer base, and selling their artwork directly to art lovers and other interested parties.  Each artist has something very special to offer a visitor.

So, do join us – take a leisurely drive through the beauty of Kerikeri and the Bay of Islands, and discover our artists in their creative environments.  You could couple this experience with a Labour Weekend break, and a visit to one of the many boutique restaurants, cafes or wineries in the area.
