About the Art House Tour

This year sees the return of Auckland Grammar School's highly successful Art House Tour, in association with Barfoot & Thompson.

The event offers visitors the opportunity to tour eight superb homes from within the Grammar community while at the same time viewing a wide selection of art for sale from both individual artists and local galleries. Click here to view the catalogue.

Homes on show include stunning, award-winning new builds by some of New Zealand's leading architects alongside historic villas and bungalows that have been beautifully renovated and restored throughout. The works of 4-5 different artists, ranging from paintings and sculptures to ceramics and glassware, will be on sale at each home.

A major draw card this year is our partnership with My Art. Visitors who have registered and received pre-approval from My Art will be able to make a down-payment of just 10% of the work's value and take it away with them at the end of the day.

In addition to the many independent artists involved, some of whom will be 'in residence' with their work, two galleries will be represented on the tour - Gow Langsford and NKB.

All proceeds from the Art House Tour go towards the School's Academic Endowment Fund, in support of recruiting, retaining and rewarding top quality teaching staff at Grammar.

My Art

A major draw card for visitors to the 2018 Auckland Grammar Art House Tour is our association with charitable art-buying organisation My Art who, in a great show of support for the school, have generously offered to partner with us at no charge.

To make it as easy as possible to purchase pieces of art on the day, My Art will provide interest-free loans for artworks over $1,000 to those visitors who have registered and received pre-approval with them. These visitors will be able to make a down-payment of just 10% of the work’s value and take it away with them at the end of the day.

Please make sure you register before attending this year's Art House tour, if you would like to use the My Art service. See the My Art website for more information.
