Due to the Covid19 restrictions, the NZ Art Show were unable to have their annual art show, a celebration of emerging and established New Zealand Artists.
However, “to show innovation and in the spirit of Kiwi creativity” (artshow.co.nz, 2020) they decided to create a new art show experience by having a virtual show – NZ Art Show 2020 ONLINE.
All artists on the online site were selected to exhibit and sell their work at the NZ Art Show 2020. Artists are still able to do this online. The site – artshow.co.nz – has options to view the work and contact the artist directly to buy and is being updated daily with new artworks. The virtual show “saw 36,653 visits to the site from 27,000 unique visitors, viewing 356,443 pages in the first 3 weeks” (artshow.co.nz, 2020).
We were delighted to support the NZ Art Show 2020 ONLINE again this year. Signature Promotions have been Silver tiered corporate sponsors of the show since 2014 and will continue to proudly support them in the future.
“Signature Promotions Ltd are a Silver tiered corporate sponsor of the NZ Art Show and we have been lucky enough to have had their support since 2014. They are super passionate about supporting emerging NZ artists and as naturally creative people they’re also committed to helping endorse the artists’ creative futures. Each year at the show they sponsor the ’Signature Promotions Art Award’ which acknowledges overall excellence in the visual arts, awarded to two artists annually.
This year, as we’ve had to think outside the square due to Covid-19, Signature Promotions have been behind us all the way, supporting the NZ Art Show Online. We are so grateful for their ongoing support and look forward to exchanging ideas as we continue to work together.”
