Wai Art is a Carterton-based organisation, providing opportunities for local artists to show their work and engage with the public.
The Big Wai Art Sale has become a major, annual attraction at Carterton’s Daffodil Festival each September. The giant cash and carry art sale is held in the Carterton Event Centre over three days.
The main auditorium features over 1,500 beautiful two-dimensional artworks mainly from Wairarapa artists but also including artists from Tauranga, Hawkes Bay and Wellington. The Big Wai Art Sale is completely volunteer run and artist managed, so many of the artists will be on site to chat to visitors and potential art buyers.
