The Gala Opening, a highlight on the Coromandel arts scene, kicks off the annual Art Escape Open Studios and Showcase exhibition. It is a chance to meet the artists, mingle with other art lovers, purchase art and is your exclusive preview to our Member's Showcase Exhibition.


This art event includes a complimentary glass of wine, hors d'oeuvres and live music by our guest band of the evening.


The guest speaker, is one of New Zealand’s premier cast glass sculptors and winner of multiple awards, Di Tocker.

Di discovered her love of glass at the early age of 18 and that lead to a career in design. Using the lost-wax casting technique she works full time in her purpose-built studio in Cambridge.


As well as being a highly respected artist Di is also an engaging and entertaining speaker.  She will also be offering one of her pieces for auction on the night. See more of her stunning works at
