New categories in Waipu wearable arts comp

 

Entries are now invited for the 2017 Art n Tartan wearable art contest held every year in Waipu.

Brand new and exciting categories will feature this year, with a prize pool of over $16,000.

The Art n Tartan organising team, led by artistic director Helen Frances, felt it was time for a change and a revamping of the categories has injected new life into the event.

The contest, under the umbrella of the Waipu Museum, is the well-established Northland answer to WOW, first conceived as the finale to Tartan Week, Waipu’s s annual Scottish celebration..

The first show was held in 2010 to great acclaim and, since then, has developed a reputation for ex-cellence and professionalism.

Contestants and audience members come from as far afield as Roxburgh in the South Island and Kerikeri in the north.

This year’s show invites entrants to create a ‘Weird and Wonderful’ glow-in-the dark piece of wearable art for one section, as well as taking inspiration from the famous Scottish Diaspora Tapes-try for another.

Also new is the category ‘Our Place in Aotearoa’ where artists can gather inspiration from their rich, New Zealand cultural backgrounds.

‘Beam me up Scottie!’ will inspire those artists looking towards the future. Full details of all sections can be found on the Waipu Museum website, waipumuseum.com and the Art n Tartan Facebook page.

Closing date for entries is Friday, April 28. Entries need not be finished by then as preliminary judging does not take place until June 18.

The show is scheduled for July 21-22.
