July brings the annual Riversdale Art Mixed Media Exhibition back to the Southland arts arena. In its 48th year, Riversdale Arts Inc has a wealth of experience in delivering a polished exhibition.

This year we are delighted to have Renata Karena of Queenstown our guest artist. Ren is a Maori artist descending from Ngati Kahungunu, Te Aupouri and Ngai Tahu. He attended the Manukau Institute of Technology where he completed a Bachelor of Arts. 

The Exhibition runs from our Gala Opening night on Friday 2nd July, then daily 11 am to 5 pm, through to Sunday 11th July closing at 3 pm. Follow us on Facebook or check out www.riversdalearts.co.nz for tickets and further information.
