Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki was proud to present the 21st Pat Hanly Creativity Awards at an award ceremony on Thursday night (10 August), recognising 71 visual art students from 39 secondary schools and kura.
Established in 2002, the awards celebrate senior secondary school students throughout the greater Tāmaki Makaurau region who display outstanding creativity in the visual arts.
Auckland Art Gallery Director Kirsten Lacy said, ‘The calibre of work submitted by the students was exceptional, demonstrating the bright talent among our next generation of artists. Through the Pat Hanly Creativity Awards, it is an honour to recognise students for their artistic efforts, and inspire our youth to further their creative and artistic endeavours.’
