2019 MMCA - Painting and Drawing Exhibition
This locally-based national award exhibition showcases 80 artworks, hand-picked by our 2019 Molly Morpeth Canaday Award Judges. The works are exhibited across all three of Te Kōputu a te whanaga a Toi's gallery spaces in a stunning visual display of painting and drawing by New Zealand artists.
Come along to our gallery talks to get different perspectives on why these works and winners were chosen, and to learn more about contemporary art.
The aim of the 2019 Molly Morpeth Canaday Award is to encourage and celebrate the development of painting and drawing on a national level, and reward artists who create outstanding works. Remember to cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award while you’re at Te Kōputu – your favourite work may be recognised as a result!
