A huge range of artists across many different venues
Now in it's 10th year! ARTS in the VILLE is an annual festival and art trail held over Labour Weekend that celebrates the many local artists in the area. Come and take advantage of this great opportunity to view, discuss and purchase art pieces from a huge range of artists across many different venues. These include open studios, venues and other pop-up spaces which will be marked clearly, and can be found on the map provided from this website as a download, or on-site in Helensville during the festival weekend.
From 10 – 4pm each day (Saturday, Sunday and Monday), Helensville will be buzzing with visitors taking advantage of the vibrant display of art. Join in and you’ll experience a variety of media from sculpture, embroidery, painting, pottery, ceramic, etchings, glasswork, millinery, repurposed mixed media and engineered creations, for both your indoor and outdoor spaces. In many cases you will have the opportunity to meet the artist in their studio, discuss pieces with them, and sometimes see them at work. Most pieces will be for sale (see FAQs page for more info).
The Visual Treasure Hunt is a highlight of the long weekend, made and donated by well-respected, New Zealand sculptor Jeff Thomson, whose studio is located in the heart of Helensville.
ARTS in the VILLE should not be missed! We are working hard to make this event a bright light in your calendar. Come for the day, or the weekend, and enjoy the art, local cafes and other local attractions.
