Gala Event to Open Art Escape Kicking off with the Gala event at 6pm on Friday 3 March at Hot Waves Café in Hot Water Beach, the Art Escape will be opened by treasured New Zealand gardening writer and broadcaster - Lynda Hallinan. Integrating art and nature, Lynda’s favourite gardens are those that double as both a work of planted art, and as a space to share and showcase the work of other creative minds. Tickets to the Gala event can be purchased from our new website or at Hot Waves Café.

Visit Hot Waves Café here you can view the Artist’s Showcase Exhibition that features one work from each member and group. Call in to Hot Waves Café for lunch or brunch from March 5 - April 11. Vote for your favourite artwork and the artist with the most public votes wins the coveted People's Choice Award.

Make the first two weekends in March 2023 a great time to escape to Mercury Bay to spend some quality time sharing exciting art, good food, great scenery and wonderful hospitality.
