All your ArtPoint questions answered below:
ArtPoint is a day to celebrate the arts in and with our community, through a trail of open studios, exhibitions and workshops.
ArtPoint is based in Hobsonville Point, Auckland and immediate surrounds. You can see the exact location of events on our map.
ArtPoint is not a trail with a beginning or end, you can pick and choose which venues or events you go to, and when you go, bearing in mind the hours of the event. The majority of events and venues are open from 10am-4pm on Saturday 11 November, 2023. A few events are running for a slightly shorter time. Please check the details on our digital map for the most up to date hours.
If the event on the ArtPoint digital map is at a private residence then the artist has decided to open a part of their home or business to ArtPoint patrons. Please be respectful of the spaces, and stay within the area the artist has their ArtPoint exhibition or open studio.
If the door is closed please knock once and don’t enter unless invited.
A few events, such as those at the Catalina Bay Farmer’s Market, run for slightly shorter hours than the main Artpoint event. Please check our digital map for hours.
There may be some unforeseen circumstances under which the artist needs to close their event early. We will do our best to keep our digital map up to date with such information. If the door to a venue is closed please knock once and don’t enter unless invited.
Some artists may be selling their works during ArtPoint. If you wish to buy an artwork on the day you can speak directly to the artist about the purchase.
If you decide after the day that you want to buy an artwork you saw, and you don’t know how to contact the artist directly, send us a message using the form below and we will do our best to put you in contact with the artist.
