Beyond the Mask – Doctor and Dentist Art Exhibition 2022

10 May 2022 ASMS

Are you a sculptor, fine artist, ceramicist, potter, photographer, or textile artist?  For the second year running, we are hosting an art exhibition featuring the artworks of doctors and dentists.

The exhibition is open to specialists, GPs, dentists, residents, and house officers, including medical and dental students.

It will be professionally curated by the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts in Wellington where the works will be displayed.

It will open on 23 November with a gala event to coincide with the ASMS Conference and will run for nine days.

The artworks will be up for sale and there will be prizes for categories such as ‘best in show’, ‘best new artist’, ‘curator’s choice’, and ‘people’s choice’. Last year’s prizes totalled $10,000.

If you are keen to submit something, please contact Lloyd Woods at for further details.

And if you’re interested, take a look at some of the highlights from last year’s exhibition in The Specialist magazine.
