HINENGARO TOI ORA - AFFIRMING IDENTITY THROUGH ART
Kia hora te marino

Aroha atu, aroha ma
Tātou i a tātou katoa

May the sea be like greenstone
A pathway for us all this day

Tēnā rā koe,
Pablos Art Studio is planning it’s 26th Annual Art Auction - a prestigious event in the Wellington Arts Calendar. Our auction is a chance for Pablos artists to share their voice with the wider arts community and for artists like you to contribute your talent to our amazing fundraiser event.
Our inclusive space offers regular workshops run by artists for artists. We provide an extensive creative program including art therapy. We reach out to the Wellington community at large with gallery visits, environmental art outings and by offering artists exhibitions at our very own ROAR! Gallery (now in new premises in Left Bank, off Cuba St). After 26 years, Pablos continues to cater to the diverse needs of more than 150 artists within the mental wellbeing community.
This year Pablos artists and staff are working like bonafide busy beavers to stage our auction with the fanfare it has become renowned for despite the upheaval of 2020. The auction will take place at the New Zealand Portrait Gallery in Wellington on Thursday, 12 November.
From all the artists and staff at Pablos, we thank you and we hope that you will opt to share this special event with us and help support our much-loved studio and the important work we do.
Ngā mihi nunui from all of us at Pablos
