MAANZ exhibitions can be entered by members and non-members alike, and are open to the public

Branch Exhibitions are held in the non-symposium years (2018, 2020, 2022 and so on), throughout the different Branches (all States of Australia, plus New Zealand). Branch Exhibitions are open to all MAANZ members of other branches, as well as to members of the public (non-MAANZ members).

Each Branch decides on what the requirements of their exhibition, however, all work must be original, recent, and not displayed previously in other MAANZ exhibitions.

Past exhibitions can be viewed through the links on the right hand side of this page.

The entry forms and information sheets for upcoming exhibitions can be found under “Upcoming Events” and also via the individual direct links below (pages will open in a new tab):

The National Exhibition

This is our biggest event and accompanies our Symposium, which is held every two years in a changing location in Australia. It’s a juried exhibition and attracts a high standard of contemporary mosaic art. The next National Exhibition will be accompanying our Canberra 2019 Symposium.

The 30:30 Vision Exhibition

This is an open exhibition and our signature exhibition that also runs every second year in the same year and city as the MAANZ Symposium. 30:30 Vision is an exhibition of works that are exactly 30cm x 30cm and respond to the theme of the Symposium. For 2017, the theme was “Think Beyond the Square”. The next 30:30 Vision exhibition will be held in Canberra in 2019.

The Tessera Exhibition

MAANZ invented this exhibition a few years ago, to encourage the younger members of the public to get involved with mosaics and to increase awareness of mosaics. It coincides with the MAANZ Symposium and takes place in the same location. So the next one will be in Canberra in 2019. It is a theme-free exhibition, with entry open to all children up to the age of 17. Work can be framed and been exhibited before. The 2015 exhibition can be viewed here, and 2017 here.
