ABOUT THIS EXHIBITION

The Zonta Club of Ashburton in partnership with the Ashburton Art Gallery present a new Canterbury focused all female art award. 42 entries in a variety of disciplines are included in the ZAFAA (Zonta Ashburton Female Art Award) 2017. This award seeks to raise the status of female visual artists working in the wider Canterbury area and acknowledges excellence in emerging and mid-career female artists as well as providing a platform for female youth.

Zonta International strives to empower women worldwide by improving the legal, political, economic, educational, health and professional status of women at global and local levels through service and advocacy. This exhibition reflects Zonta’s vision by recognising the artistic accomplishments of women who are actively contributing to and shaping our art scene and creating a bold and diverse future for the arts in Canterbury.
