WELCOME TO AUCKLAND’S LARGEST ART MARKET
AUT University presents the Original Art Sale, Auckland’s largest art market. Over 1,200 artworks by more than 300 New Zealand artists are made available for sale at this massive 3 day event. The event’s supermarket concept is designed to regularly add or change the artworks on the gallery walls. The collection from established and emerging artists presents art collectors and buyers a wide range of styles while satisfying different tastes. The artworks are priced from $100 to $5,000 and allow plenty of choices to suit the budget.
We invite you to the event’s red letter VIP opening night. It is an exciting evening where seasoned art collectors and casual art buyers scout the gallery walls for their favorite artists and for the best artworks for sale. AUT and The Original Art Sale will donate proceeds of ticket sales to Kidz First Children’s Hospital of the Middlemore Foundation.
