The work of 34 artists from Ōtaki and Te Horo will be showcased during this year’s Kāpiti Arts Trail.
Paintings, pottery, jewellery, ceramics, glass art, fibre creations, drawings, carvings, totem poles and garden art will be exhibited by 13 studio artists and two galleries (featuring the work of 12 artists). A sculpture park will display work by nine sculptors.
For the first time this year, the event will be held over two weekends — 31 Oct/1 Nov & 7/8 Nov (10am to 5pm each day) — giving you more time to visit the different sites and talk to the artists involved.
“It’s great to see the trail being extended and a number of artists are planning to
be open during the week between the weekends as well,” says artist Bee Doughty-Pratt who
has been involved in numerous arts trails as an individual studio artist and owner of ‘Scape Sculpture Park in Ōtaki.
The Kāpiti Arts Trail has been running for 15 years and has become one of the district’s most significant cultural events. 130 artists from Ōtaki to Paekākāriki will be involved in this year’s trail.
