Art Gallery: What's On

Coming 2021

Now showing in the main gallery:

Attachments: 15th Jan - 4th February

”The Whanganui-based artists featured in this exhibition are Keeley Eastwood (printmaking) and Bradley Mosen (photography).

The exhibition is loosely based on a general theme of ‘nostalgia’, with featured works touching on inner themes of: memory; emotional attachment to objects, people, animals, places and ways of life; processing how it feels to love something and yet have to let it go; yearnings for an older, simpler way of being  — as well as new life and new beginnings

AND Rhiannon Higgs 15th Jan - 4th February

Exploring the way in which we have built our lives, and how this has tangibly been represented through the elements of a home.

Rhonda Bunyan : Photographer. 5th Feb-11th March

"Touching the soul"

These big bold black and white photographs touch the soul of the Wellington, one of Bunyan’s favourite spots to wander with her camera. They capture a wondrously bright and interesting, and sometimes gritty and dark portrait of our capital city. Bunyan enjoys being the watcher, perched on the edge of someone else’s reality looking in with a keen eye. Lines and shapes, light and dark, dominate her work.

Selection of the exhibition still showing.

Simeon Patience  “Our Land”

Pre -Lockdown exhibitor, Auckland photographic artist Simeon Patience is still showing his large, serenely beautiful works of “Our Land”.

Photographs of monumental beauty.

Selection still showing upstairs at Fenton Street.

Between exhibitions we have a photographic display of old Stratford.

The larger photographs have been re-digitalized at Puke-Ariki. This reveals details that had never been seen in the original photos as they were never enlarged.

These are a fascinating snapshot of Stratford and the landscape that dramatically transformed as bush was converted to pasture.
