Mercury Bay Art Escape member artists are centred around the beautiful coastal area of Mercury Bay on the Eastern Coromandel Peninsula, New Zealand.
From small beginnings of the Mercury Bay Cultural weekend in 2006, featuring 20 Open Art Studios the event has grown to become a major attraction on the Peninsula calendar over the first two weekends in March. Now in its 11th year the Mercury Bay Art Escape programme involves 45 artists and art groups, an Open Artists Studio event, a members’ showcase exhibition, pop up exhibitions, Coromandel wide Art and Craft Fair, a high school art scholarship programme, film evenings and workshops for artists in the Coromandel.
First two weekends in March 3 & 4 and 10 & 11.
03 Mar 18 - 11 Mar 18 Studios open 10am-4pm, Sat & Sun
