Thank you for supporting the 2022 Auckland Grammar School Foundation Trust Art House Tour. The Arts are a key part of the School’s curriculum and the well-rounded education offered to our young men.
During this event, you will see works by current students, Grammar Old Boys, several Grammar masters and artists from around New Zealand, all of whom are happy to share their passion for art and their talent with us.
Our thanks are extended to this year’s committee, ably led by Anna Tierney, and the many sponsors, volunteers and supporters who have given of their time and expertise in support of the Foundation Trust. Thank you also to the owners of the beautiful homes made available to you for this year’s Tour. Their willingness to open their homes is appreciated as it provides a unique twist on the original art exhibition and the opportunity to see original art in beautiful homes.
The Auckland Grammar School Foundation Trust is most grateful for your support, as the funds raised are allocated to the Academic Endowment Fund, to recruit, retain and reward the very best teachers. The Trust supports the ongoing development of Art at the School.
Enjoy the beautiful homes and gardens on this year’s Tour and the extensive range of artwork that has been curated within – hopefully you will own a piece of art by the end of the day that adorns your walls, while also giving back to the Grammar community.
The Auckland Grammar School Foundation Trust launched the annual Art Expo in 2002. Each year, the event featured over 160 artists showcasing their artwork with over 2,000 attendees.
In 2016, the Art Expo became the Art House Tour to help establish a point of difference to the other fundraising art shows hosted by other Auckland schools.
2022 marks the fourth biennial Art House Tour, comprising a tour of eight homes within the Grammar community, as well as an Art Gallery, featuring the work of over 80 local and international artists.
While the homes are for viewing only, the displayed art within them is for sale with all proceeds benefitting the Academic Endowment Fund, allowing the School to recruit, retain and reward the very best teachers. The art is displayed in a salon setting so buyers can envision how the pieces would enrich the décor of their own house.
We would love for you to join us for the 2022 Art House Tour on Saturday 26 November.
We have eight beautiful homes within the Grammar community for the 2022 Art House Tour. Exact address details will be made available to those who have purchased tickets in the week of the Tour which will be held on Saturday 26 November.
