This annual arts happening began during Iride McCloy’s term as Kapiti mayor and has been a feature of the calendar ever since.

“The Kapiti Coast Art Trail showcases over 120 artists in studios and shared spaces. Alongside 13 Exhibition Spaces (galleries), over 300 artists are exhibiting this year. Over ten different types of mediums are represented, from painting to jewellery to ceramics and textiles. Many of our artists are award-winning, so we know there will be someone who inspires and delights you on the Trail.

“Curate your own journey by clicking on the artists who catch your eye and pique your curiosity, then add them to your favourites.

“You can filter your selection by either location or artist medium; once selected, just click on the location or medium box again to hide your selection. You can also search for your favourite artists by name or studio.”
