Riversdale Arts invites up to eighty mixed media artists from around New Zealand to exhibit for ten days. Most works are for sale and you have to be there on opening night to have first dibs.
Also on site is a cash and carry shop featuring items by exhibiting artists and invited crafts people. Café YUM has coffee, lunch and delectable treats, and various classes are run during exhibition week.
To celebrate 45 years of exhibitions, artist Janet de Wagt(Dunedin) and cake maker Jude Taylor(Gore) are combining their talents to produce an installation.
There will also be installations on the lawn outside and at the entrance.
This year cake artists are producing three extreme cakes. They are Brittany Thurston from Wanaka (White Rabbit Cakes), Kathryn Deaker, Te Anau (Cakes by Kathryn) and Tammie McWhinney, Tapanui (Cake by Victoria M).
