The buzz generated by International Art Centre's Collectable auctions reflects the popularity of this sale: an event at which seasoned connoisseurs and budding collectors alike converge to appreciate one of the most eclectic and diverse offerings available to the market.

The Collectable sale offers a number lower-priced works from highly-sought after artists in print and edition form, as well as quality works from artists whose presence on the secondary market is just beginning to crystallise. Sales of Modern and Contemporary art play an integral role in providing market access to the most sought-after artists many of whom have defined New Zealand's art narrative over the past 50 years. These sales present an exciting offering of both painting and sculpture by a range of our modern and contemporary greats. Spanning that vital period from the establishment of mid-century modernism through to the cutting edge of our national contemporary art discourse, this is an acclaimed and significant event in the auction calendar.

As well as a number of quality higher end and affordable Contemporary art works by Pat Hanly, Ralph Hotere, Kushana Bush, Don Binney, Fiona Pardington, Stanley Palmer, Philip Clairmont, Neil Driver, Virginia King, Paul Hartigan, Dame Eillen Mayo & others, this sale includes three Dilana Artist Rugs and a unique Pacific Shelves piece by David Trubridge.

The auction will be on view from Monday 17 June at our Parnell auction room, 202 Parnell Rd. Please note that there will be no Sunday viewing available for this auction.
