This is the fifth installment of our much anticipated biennial awards and exhibition at Tauranga Art Gallery. As always, the finalists and award winners exhibition features a diverse range of works from Bay of Plenty artists. The exhibition will be held at Tauranga Art Gallery between June 16 and September 2, 2018.
The Miles Art Awards is generously supported by The Venetta Miles Trust including through a Supreme Award of $10.000, and also made possible thanks to the Friends of the Gallery, Tauranga Mayor Greg Brownless, The Incubator, and the Bay of Plenty Times. The event is named after one of Tauranga Art Gallery’s original donors, Venetta Miles, who is remembered for her considerable foresight and generosity.
Make sure to vote for your favourite work in the exhibition in the People's Choice Awards, generously supported by the Bay of Plenty Times, which will be drawn on after the exhibition closes.
