Reach Out Revealed - NZ Art Guild 2008 Collaborative Project

Here is it - finally after all these months!!

Measuring 1.27m x 1.52m this artwork is huge in talent and size!

Many different pieces make it up and to see individual photos of each of the 90 artworks please go to

88 artists have contributed to 'Reach Out' by creating one small individual artwork each. They were provided with a small wooden panel and given a theme to paint to. The theme this year is 'On your mind' and interpretation of this is entirely up to the artists. When all of these individual artworks are combined they create an overall image and a stunning one of a kind artwork measuring 1.27m x 1.52m. The overall image of the collaborative artwork is kept secret, even from those participating in it, until the unveiling of the artwork on the opening night of the NZ Art Guild annual exhibition - Make it Memorable

Media: Wood (some artists have incorporated mixed media also)
