The Howick Youth Council's East Auckland Visual Arts Showcase will once again showcase the best of visual art produced by young people living in Howick, Pakuranga, Botany, and Ormiston.
We want to give young artists in our community the opportunity to show off their work — whether it be painting, sculpture, animation, photography, or mixed media.
In partnership with Arts Out East and Uxbridge Arts & Culture, art produced by young artists will be on showcase from Friday 19th June to Friday 27th June at the Malcolm Smith Gallery in Howick.
This exhibition will be free to view and is open to submissions from youth aged between 12 and 24 who live in the area covered by the Howick Local Board. 2020 will be the third year in which the showcase has been run.
“Running this event into its third year has been such a privilege. It‘s always so inspiring to see the amazing work produced by the young artists of East Auckland. This year is no different,” says HYC team lead Cuan Pillay, whose team is in charge of the project.

For the first time, the showcase will also include two main categories: Themed Art and Open Art — with a chance to submit art that relates to the theme: ‘Modern and Traditional Connection’.
Submissions for the showcase close on May 17th.
