Allpress Espresso is celebrating five years since opening their Studio doors; a place to support artists, designers, makers and community-minded groups.

Running from 1 August to 14 September, Allpress will host an exhibition titled ‘100 Artists’, to celebrate and acknowledge the creators who have shared their work in the space since its inception.

The six-week showcase will feature 35 selected artists, a range of community events and talks, and a limited-edition Allpress coffee, ‘100 Artists Blend’.

‘100 Artists’ features paintings, sculpture, ceramics, glass works, photography and design by makers including Raukura Turei, Hannah Jensen, Jake Feast, Cruz Jimenez, Monmouth Glass Studio, Richard Hodder, Ken Griffin and Lisa Reihana.

All work will be available to purchase and priced between $250 - $2,500, meaning art lovers will have the opportunity to own something special from these great talents.
