Founded in 1982, Harcourts Artex 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 Hawke's Bay Community via the Artex Community Grant and smaller gifts.

Harcourts Artex 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 3-day period which gives our artists
significant exposure and encouragement and the public ample time to enjoy this cultural enrichment.

Held annually since 1982, most recently in the Napier War Memorial and Conference Centre, Harcourts Artex is the community fundraising event of The Rotary Club of Greenmeadows. To date nearly $900,000 has been raised and gifted back to the Hawke’s Bay community. This year’s event which is the 39th annual will be held from June 19 – 20 featuring over 60 artists and 150 pieces from across New Zealand.

We take pride in the fact that Harcourt’s Artex 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.
