Sky TV will be turning television sets across the country into New Zealand's largest art gallery again with the return of Art Your TV, a free pop-up channel available from February 15-23.

Once again partnering with five of New Zealand's most well-known galleries, the Sky Arts Art Your TV pop-up channel will screen a revolving showcase of works from a wide variety of New Zealand artists. 

Images of each artwork will be broadcast in 15-minute rotations throughout the day and can be seen on Sky TV channel 220 from 10am on Wednesday, February 15.
