Event Details

On Saturday 27 November the annual Muka Youth Print Exhibition returns to Gore. Arguably New Zealand’s longest on-going art event, for more than 30 years, the Muka Youth Print Exhibition has been touring the country exhibiting original stone lithographs exclusively for young people. This event gives children (aged 5-18) the opportunity to purchase original contemporary art, by top New Zealand and international artists, in an environment where adults are not allowed.

The works reflect the normal concerns of the artists; there is no patronising or ‘talking down’ to children. All the Youth Prints are for sale for a uniform $80 (unframed). Artist’s signatures are covered up to encourage children to choose work based on their individual taste and appreciation of the work rather than the artist’s reputation. Entry to the exhibition is free, any young person is welcome and there is no pressure to buy.
