Kāpiti Arts Trail 2019
Following on from the Kāpiti Arts Trail
The Kāpiti Arts Trail has just passed and was a great event for visitors and artists. We showcased a huge range of art and artists, from traditional or cutting edge, soul-soothing or challenging, comfortable or provocative, decorative, awe-inspiring or functional. Watch this video to experience or relive the wonderful atmosphere of Kāpiti and the Arts Trail.
If you missed out, or wish to go back to a particular artist studio or gallery, our Kāpiti Arts Guide is current right through the year. Many artists and galleries are open by appointment or at regular hours. Some are holding "after the Arts Trail" exhibitions, and most will welcome visitors' enquiries. Copies of Kāpiti Arts Guide are available from libraries and i-sites and many other venues in Kāpiti, Greater Wellington, and neighbouring regions.

Many visitors filled out the coupon to be entered into a prize draw for an artwork of their choice. The Mayor drew the winner on Wednesday 20 November and we congratulate the winner, Marcella Gregan.

About Kāpiti, its artists, and the Kāpiti Arts Trail
Kāpiti is a wonderful environment for our large number of artists, many of whom have moved here to draw inspiration from the beautiful bush-clad hills, fantastic parks and rivers, and wide-open beaches, and of course the iconic and mysterious Kāpiti Island. The cultural heritage of Kāpiti was also strongly represented on the Arts Trail this year, with participants working in traditional and contemporary Ngā Toi Māori, and a new Hub set in the historic Lindale Village.
the Kāpiti Arts Trail is a firmly established annual event, evolving from a popular community celebration of the artists in our midst to being a major drawcard for visitors from neighbouring regions. Our mission statement says the Arts Trail is:
To celebrate the Creative Kāpiti Coast, by providing emerging and established artists living and/or working in Kāpiti District the opportunity to participate in this flagship arts event, and showcase their work to the local and visiting public during the Arts Trail and year-round.
Visitors to Kāpiti can experience some of our wonderful natural features and also our growing number of great eating places and accommodation choices. Thanks to all the Kāpiti businesses who are supported the Arts Trail in 2019.
