Welcome to the Mahurangi Artist Network. We are a group of enthusiastic creatives in the Mahurangi region north of Auckland, from Puhoi to Wellsford and all points in between. We get together regularly to network, inspire and support each other. Once a year, a group of our members participate in our annual Mahurangi Artist Studio Trail.
Held over two weekends, the Mahurangi Artist Studio Trail brings together artists from many disciplines, schools and techniques. This is your chance to see the working areas of local artists, talk to them about their ideas, watch amazing skills in action, maybe buy some special pieces of art or be inspired to do something for yourself.
It is planned that several venues will also open during the week between the weekends, for full information see here
With an upsurge of Delta Covid numbers in the greater Auckland area that includes the Mahurangi District and the continuation of the high level of protections we must all work within right now, mean that it is not viable to open our studios to the public on the planned dates of 23, 24, 25, 30 & 31 October 2021. So we are postponing the event for the meantime. The new dates will be influenced by predictions about the duration of the current lockdown conditions and the availability of shared public venues for those artists on the Trail who were joining forces to show their work together. We will make an annoucement of the relaunch of the 2021 Trail as soon as we can.
