Chow:Hill was proud to be a part of this year's National Contemporary Art Awards held at the Waikato Museum.
Director Brian Squair:
Once again, it is our great pleasure to be associated with the National Contemporary Art Award and Exhibition. In supporting this Award we signal a strong advocacy for artistic expression and excellence, the Waikato Museum and the great city of Hamilton.
The business of Chow:Hill is design and delivery of projects that not only serve a functional purpose, but also enrich the lives of those who experience the environments we design. We sense therefore, a strong accord with the realm of art and design, and we congratulate all the NCAA artists contributing to this event and wish them well in their work and creative expression.
Waikato Museum Director Cherie Meecham says the National Contemporary Art Award proves the creative genius of artists is ceaseless.
"This exhibition of 34 finalists' works proves art has the ability to say things we may not be able to put into words, and in its 17th year, this art award is stronger than ever. We are excited to share an outstanding exhibition this year."
The exhibition is open until Sunday 4 December 2016 at Waikato Museum.
The winner of the 2016 National Contemporary Art Award, Sorawit Songsataya, for his work titled 'Good Kisser' received $20,000 from the major sponsors, Chow:Hill and Tompkins Wake.
