Palmers Garden Art and Sculpture Exhibition – Call for Artists

We are calling for artworks for our outdoor garden art and sculpture exhibition, on show in Palmers Garden Centre, 147 Sala Street, Rotorua in mid February 2019.

This show is a great opportunity for artists to exhibit garden related art in a beautiful setting with ready built customers for your works. PLUS we will be having judging of all exhibits by Trevor Nathan and a people’s choice to engage our shoppers with the exhibition. There will be a $100 Palmers Rotorua voucher for the winner of each section.

Palmers Rotorua will promote the exhibition by way of newspaper, social media and to our 14,000 strong database of local rewards customers leading up to and during the exhibition.

Inspiration for your works can come from anywhere – think of our diverse city and all the wonderful natural resources that surround us. If it can enhance a garden area then it will be suitable.
