The event may have been postponed for the second year in a row due to Covid, but the Raglan Arts Weekend (RAW) is still offering up art for its fans. This week sees the re-opening 10am to 2pm every day from 3rd to 21st Nov. of the Preview Exhibition at the Old School, 5 Stewart St, Raglan, coupled with the Preview Exhibition launching online for the first time ever.

Our gallery assistants will also ensure there is room for everyone to enjoy their visit, keeping you, your whaanau and our community safe.
As per usual, there is a very popular 300×300 show where artworks are sold for a fraction of their usual price at $200 each. There is also a main exhibition, suitably titled: ‘And Then We Paused/ Reflections of a Covid World’.
“It’s a sizable collection of work with two artworks per artist, meaning 84 artworks are displayed,” explains Nicky. “A big chunk of these were sold in the four days the Preview Exhibition was open before lockdown, but there are plenty still up for grabs. We have 13 new artists and the collection covers a really broad range of media – sculpture, painting, photography, metal work, encaustic, print making, illustration, pottery, weaving, textile art, designer jewellery, to name a few.”
