Spring Art Festival Fundraiser

Enrich+ welcomes you to our Spring Art Festival fundraiser. An evening to celebrate the artistic talents of the people in our local disability community.

Seven  of our artists from the Supported Activities art and craft sessions in Te Awamutu, have made the annual IHC Art Awards semi-final.

The work of Hannah MacFarlane, Julie Tate, Stevie Cook, Andrea Meddings, Pauline Beuno, Sarah Griffin and Kathleen Bayer will be considered for the awards which feature 100 pieces of art.


The awards provide artists the opportunity to have their talent recognised, their voices heard and to sell their work.

Tutor Theresa Siemonek from Enrich+ said she was thrilled to see so many of her artists in the top 100.

“I’m really proud of what our artists have done. They join a long list of our artists over many years who have featured in the IHC art awards.”

Enrich+ has 26 artists currently participating in its art and craft sessions in Te Awamutu. It is a place to come together to develop artistic skills and techniques with like-minded people. These artists will have their work on display at the Enrich+ Centre and Gallery in Teasdale Street and for sale by auction during the evening’s event.

Service manager Shelley Blair said the night on July 28 will celebrate the artistic talents of local people in the community.

“We wanted to give back to a charitable organisation that does some wonderful work in our community and Te Awamutu Riding for the Disabled was an obvious choice and will receive a percentage of the auctioned items.

“Come along and view the incredible art work for sale, purchases can be made through live and silent auction. Your support is appreciated.”

We have a limited number of tickets for sale, so please book now to avoid missing out.

No door sales will be available on the night, entry by pre-purchased ticket only.
