Seasons Greetings & 2017 Opening

End of Year Highlights
Posted on 21 December 2016

In our final communication for 2016 the A+O team would like to thank all of our clients who contributed to a record year for the New Zealand art market. In 2016 A+O was favoured with a number of superb collections, from the archive of Professor Michael Dunn in February to the magnificent Tim and Sherrah Francis Collection in September, which saw numerous new auction records set. Literally thousands of you took the opportunity to view the collection in Wellington and Auckland; we did enjoy meeting you. In November A+O offered the Real Art Roadshow which was again viewed by many who had followed the collection on its ten year journey around the schools of New Zealand.

ART+OBJECT will be closed from Thursday 22 December, re-opening on January 18 2017 with our first auctions scheduled for late February.
