About

Founded in 1982, Harcourts Art-X National Exhibition and Sale is the major fundraiser of The Rotary Club of Greenmeadows Napier.

All of the proceeds from this event are gifted back to the Hawkes Bay Community via the Art-X Community Grant and smaller gifts.

Harcourts Art-X is not just a fundraiser, it is a significant cultural event. It is an opportunity for art
lovers to see a diverse collection of paintings, all in one place, featuring the work of top artists from
all over New Zealand and all for sale. The event runs over a 10-day period which gives our artists
significant exposure and encouragement and the public ample time to enjoy this cultural enrichment

We are pleased to hold this event over a 10-day period to allow greater exposure of our talented artists and for the public to enjoy this broad spectrum of art. It is a major event on the Hawkes Bay cultural calendar.

Held annually since 1982, most recently in the Pan Pac Foyer of the Napier Municipal Theatre, Harcourts Art-X is the community fundraising event of The Rotary Club of Greenmeadows. To date nearly $900,000 has been raised and gifted back to the Hawkes Bay community. This year’s event which is the 38th annual will be held from June 21 – 30 featuring over 60 artists and 180 pieces from across New Zealand.

We take pride in the fact that Harcourt’s Art-X has helped launch the career of many emerging artists. For many years we have invited at least 3 artists from the Eastern Institute of Technology’s Faculty of Art and Design to exhibit.
