The cash and carry concept

The Christchurch Art Show is a cash and carry art show. Sold artwork (except for heavy sculpture and award works) leaves the building with the purchaser. Work is hung and displayed on your artist pack panels. Your excess work is stored onsite and as artwork is sold and moves on with the purchaser your stored work replaces the sold work in your exhibition. This means that the show is constantly rotating. The movement of artwork is dictated by the movement of sales. We advise artists to make sure that they provide enough extra work to replace their sold work.


Artists who are present to promote their own work curatetheir own works. Please display your own catalogue, business cards and promotional materials.


The Christchurch Art Show has full control and the final say in the hanging and exhibition of all works in the show. The Christchurch Art Show retains the right to remove any unwanted material. The movement of artworks in a cash and carry show is initiated by the purchaser and because of this we cannot guarantee that all the artworks supplied will be on exhibit.
