Exhibitor testimonials 2016

“This fair was a very significant uplift on the one prior, due to the new ownership and the skillful work of the co-directors – making it of significant benefit to auckland.”

-Trish Clark, Owner Trish Clark Gallery (Auckland)

“Our first-time participation in the auckland art fair was a highly successful experience. Under Stephanie post and Hayley white’s directorship the fair was a focussed, friendly and boutique event with an engaged, informed and interested audience. It enabled us to showcase our gallery and the participating artist to a new audience in New Zealand and we are confident that we now have a profile amongst the New Zealand art world that we are interested to build further through ongoing participation in the Auckland Art Fair.”

-Kate Barber, Director Sarah Scout Presents (Melbourne)

“Excellent networking, great relationship and profile building for not-for-profit art organisations, and a great event for auckland. The art fair team are very professional and ambitious, the event really went up a notch.” 

- Kelly Carmichael, Director Te Tuhi (Auckland)

VIP testimonials 2016

“The fair provided the impetus for our group to spend nine days in nz visiting galleries and artists’ studios in regional centres as well as auckland itself. This clearly demonstrates the ‘value adding’ effect it has on tourism.”

- Australian collector and patron (Sydney)

“We find auckland art fair to be a breath of fresh air in the full schedule of art fairs and think the size and number of galleries is a great point of difference to art stage singapore, sydney contemporary or art basel hong kong. We love the intimacy of the small number of galleries.”

- Australian collector and patron (Sydney)


“Auckland art fair this year was particularly successful from the point of view of galleries and the viewing public. The fair had real zing and i look forward with anticipation to the next event in 2017.”

- Auckland collector and patron

“I thought the opportunities to explore some out-of-town art places were great, we didn’t do it all this time so will come back again and again to revisit what is on offer. The vip programme was very sleek and well run.” 

-Christchurch collector and patron
