Mentoring opportunity with Santie and Quirky Fox
We are excited to offer “one” artist an opportunity to be mentored by Santie and Quirky Fox in the business and practice of an artist living and working in New Zealand. This is a wonderful opportunity to help you determine what it is that you want from your art, and work with you to plan the next steps of your creative journey. To add to this opportunity, we have teamed up with Quirky Fox Gallery towards a first solo show. Quirky Fox Gallery is in its 6th year and Vicki is an experienced gallery owner working with a variety of emerging artists in different fields of practice.
We look forward to seeing you in Tirau this August!
