2018 Kaiapoi Art Expo

The 13th Corcoran French Art Expo is bigger and better than ever with 650 artworks on display from over 100 artists all under one roof. Artworks include painting, photography, ceramics, textiles and more, something for all art lovers. Alongside the Expo is the very popular Bowden Environmental School Expo which will feature 14 Waimakariri Schools.  

An event not to be missed, block out the weekend of July 14th and July 15th, open from 10am to 5pm at the Kaiapoi Club, Raven Quay Kaiapoi. Entry is via gold coin only.  

Plus an exciting draw-card sees the return of popular urban pop artist, Joel Hart, as guest artist. Joel will be exhibiting his popular urban pop style paintings. An exhibitor in previous years he has since been busy painting very large murals on the streets of Christchurch.   His graphic design background informs his work with the inclusion of graphic art, printing, stencil art, spray paint and projection, all techniques he uses to create works that are increasing in size. Like his smaller works his colourful trademark portraits are instantly recognisable with their bright neon colours and graphic techniques. His latest work features the use of Perspex to create layers and the completed images framed in a lightbox which when lit adds a dramatic quality to the image. His artwork will be featured on the main stage at the Expo.  

For something different Have A Go at being an artist for the day. Downstairs at the Kaiapoi Club all 10am to 3pm will be various mediums of art where you can have a go! Pottery, painting, photography, weaving and much more.  

If that isn't enough to entice you out to Kaiapoi, the Blackwell's carpark will be host once again to the now famous Blackwell's Ice Sculpting event kicking off at 1pm. This is followed by the Blackwell's Fire and Ice market.
