The Colours collective is giving artists new ways to show their work.
The Auckland art scene gets a shake-up this weekend with the Colours collective launching its first group show at Ponsonby Central.
While the show officially opened this Friday, it runs all weekend, and in addition to live art there will be music and a boutique craft market.
Street posters are up!

The collaborative force behind the event, Samual Ryan said the collective was formed to help artists find other ways of showing and selling their works in more interactive community spaces.
“Galleries have their place and have done a huge amount to help artists they exhibit, but Colours is introducing a fresh initiative that empowers artists to communicate with a wider audience, collaborate and support their local communities,” said Samuel.
Top New Zealand contemporary artists showing as part of the exhibition include Andrew J Steel, Charlotte Graham, Flox, Jimmy James Kouratoras, Layla Walter and Sam Mathers.
