Introducing Darfield Artweek
For over 35 years Darfield Artweek has been a celebration of art in our area. From Friday, 6 October to Sunday, 15 October this year the Darfield Recreation Centre, the Selwyn Gallery, and the Darfield Library will house exhibitions showcasing over 300 artworks submitted by some 120 artists from Selwyn District, the city of Christchurch, and countrywide. Many artists and visitors from this same area come to Artweek to spend a day in Darfield and the surrounding area enjoying the art, patronising the cafés and other retail outlets, and enjoying the attractions of the area.

As in previous years Darfield Artweek will be promoted in The Press, on the radio, in the local papers, and through postcards and flyers delivered to cafés and galleries throughout the district, as well as through our extensive database of interested people. We hope to exceed last year’s visitor numbers, when over 1100 people visited over the 10-day period.
