2015 SAFARI

A Capital Adventure in Watercolour - 17-19 April 2015


Watercolour New Zealand safaris offer members the opportunity to spend a weekend with fellow artists, painting and socialising, and making new friends.

This safari has a special focus on our major exhibition 'Splash' - WW1 in Watercolours to be held at St Paul's Cathedral, Wellington from 18 April - 3 May 2015. The exhibition will feature a special exhibition of over 80 paintings, sketches and prints by New Zealand WW1 servicemen and Official War Artists. The Cathedral will also be filled with the wonderful array of contemporary watercolours by our members on sale in ‘Splash’.

Members on safari will be offered a billet with a fellow artist member. You are invited to attend the special WW1 exhibition opening on April 17th at 5.30pm and enjoy an evening of wine, nibbles, music and making new friends. We will organise painting activities and outings during the weekend, plus a Safari dinner on Saturday 18th. You can meet our patron, Nancy Tichborne, who is coming for the occasion. You may wish to attend the Opening at dawn of the new National War Memorial Park on Saturday 18th April.

You can, of course, stay with relatives or friends or stay in a hotel and still join our Safari action. Partners will be welcome as on all our safaris.

If you would like further information on the Safari please email us and put ‘Safari’ in the subject line.
