ARTBOURNE 2020 – Celebrating art in our bubble….
ARTBOURNE, based at Wellesley College in Days Bay, Wellington, is part of the independent school’s thriving arts
programme and is a popular biennial art exhibition of contemporary artworks, from local and emerging artists.
In Year 1 (an even year), ARTBOURNE is a multi-artist curated exhibition; in Year 2 (an odd year) ARTBOURNE is an Artist in Residence programme – a month long artist residency.
In 2020, we hosted the ARTBOURNE Sales and Exhibition, from Thursday 15th – Saturday 17th October. We are thrilled that the exhibition, showcasing the recent work of around 30 local and emerging artists, along with our previous artists in residence and Wellesley scholars, was such a success. It also celebrated Wellesley’s unique arts programme and included a curated selection of current students’ art.
ARTBOURNE Opening Night was held Thursday 15th October 2020, 7.00pm. We sold over 130 tickets to this event and one of our lucky ticket holders won an original artwork by one of our artists, Kirsty White.
