Recommended Sponsor - Buy Original Artwork Directly from the Artist

Source: Auckland Council

Open Studios Waitākere is an annual weekend opportunity for artists resident in the Waitākere Ranges Local Board area to open their studios to the public.

With over 80 artists involved and 40 studios from Piha to Glen Eden, Titirangi to Te Henga, it’s an inspiring weekend out and about.

The weekend provides the opportunity to meet local artists, see art in action, purchase local artwork and learn about the creative process. 

Visit some of Waitākere’s most celebrated artists including sculptors, painters, jewellers, illustrators, ceramic artists and photographers.

Many of the artists will have works for sale, so we recommend having some cash ready.

You can take a self-guided tour at your own pace with our Open Studios Map and mobile App, or jump on an Open Studios Bus Tour.  Enjoy a short break from your Open Studios touring to attend one of the workshops or exhibitions.

Before the event, you can pick up copy of our brochure at your local library, gallery or café, or email to request a brochure by post. Or visit our website for full details.

For all enquiries please contact event manager Renee Tanner of Lightbox Projects Ltd by email or phone 021 149 6707.

This event is funded and supported by the Waitākere Ranges Local Board.
