Gala Night Opening November 15, 2019

Tickets are NOW on sale for the 2019 Gala Opening of the Orakei School Art Exhibition & Sale – celebrating 10 years in the making!

With more than 120 artists exhibiting and over 500 artworks on display, the Friends of Orakei School are excited to invite you to join us for the opening night Gala event.  This key fundraiser for Orakei School is a great night out with sensational food and refreshments included in the ticket price, and more importantly it gives Gala Night attendees the first opportunity to purchase artworks, well in advance to the general public viewing over the rest of the weekend.

To be held once again in the Orakei School Hall on Friday 15th November from 7pm to 10pm, Gala tickets are $45 and are available to purchase on-line or by contacting the School Office 09 5210657.

General public entry to the Exhibition will be on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th November from 10am – 4pm.  Entry over the weekend is with a gold coin donation.

With artworks priced to suit all budgets, from $50 to $5,000+, the exhibition will feature a collection of works from both established and up-and-coming New Zealand artists, including large-scale surreal visuals and oil paintings, outdoor sculpture, finely detailed glass work, ceramics, portraits and landscapes in both contemporary and classic style. 

A feature of the Gala Night is the Ray White Orakei Auction where donated items/artworks and the Orakei School children’s own special Collaborative Hub artwork pieces will be sold.  This year’s fundraising goal is to raise money towards improving the footpath that runs from the pedestrian gate located on Coates Ave up to the School forest.

Don’t miss out on joining us for this special event to support our amazing children in their learning and development.

A special thanks goes to our key 2019 sponsors:
Ray White Orakei, Simpson Grierson, Orakei Swimsation and Okahu Pilates.
