Miles Art Awards 2016 
13 August - 16 October 2016

This bi-annual event is an opportunity for artists resident in the Bay of Plenty to submit their most accomplished artworks for Tauranga’s premiere art award. The finalists work will be shown in a curated exhibition.

This is the fourth installment of our much anticipated biennial awards and exhibition at Tauranga Art Gallery. As always the finalists and award winners exhibition features a diverse range of works from Bay of Plenty artists.

The event is named after one of Tauranga Art Gallery’s original donors, Venetta Miles, who is remembered for her considerable foresight and generosity.

Make sure to vote for your favourite work in the exhibition in the UNO. Magazine People's Choice Awards which will be drawn on 7 October 2016.

The Miles Art Awards is generously supported by The Venetta Miles Trust including through a Supreme Award of $5000, and also made possible thanks to the Friends of the Gallery, Mayor Stewart Crosby, and UNO. Magazine.
