Find New Zealand Artists is an index that shows researchers researchers where you can find sources of information on over 18,000 artists. The information sources range in date from the 19th to the present day on celebrated artists to the very obscure.

A joint project by Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki and Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu, this eResource aims to answer the question - Can you tell me something about this artist?  This website will continue to be updated as contributors are made aware of new material.
