About

Easter Art Weekend 2023 – Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th April
Exhibition Opening Friday 7th April @ 6pm

We are looking forward to hosting the 8th biennial Easter Art weekend at Castle Hill Village.

The format is an Art Exhibition featuring a variety of artists in different media in our village community hall, all original art works available for purchase, and the village will also host accompanying workshops in and around the village in which visitors, both adults and children, can participate over the two days.

If you are interested in exhibiting please read on, if you are interested in coming to the event have a look at the Workshops, Timetable and Children pages for more info.

The format is the same as last time, so please see the Registration page for more information or to register an expression of interest to join us.

If you pass on to us an expression of interest, it is easier to stay in touch with you prior to the event, and if you are interested in allowing us to share a few images of your work as the next few weeks go along to help publicise the event, we can get you some social media and web coverage through our website.

If you can’t find an answer to your question on the website or on the registration forms, please contact us; we are a committee, but the right person will get back to you to answer your query.

Children

As well as your child attending some of the workshops over the weekend – maybe they might be interesting in entering their own artwork for the exhibition? Are you, or do you know of, a young artist in our midst? We have two sections open to children.

<12 years old, bring your bike to the Tennis Court on Saturday afternoon at 4.30pm for a “Fancy Dress bike competition”. You need to still be able to ride your bike, but decorate it as you please and yourself too if you wish, and perhaps win some nice prizes, courtesy of Basic Bikes in Christchurch.

12-18 years of age.
We have an area set aside for emerging artists in the main hall.
