Art Gallery: What's On

Now showing in the gallery:

Attachments: 15th Jan - 4th February extended

”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.


Now showing in the main gallery.

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.

Fenton Street Arts Collective. Upstairs

Using Shakespeare as the source, the series presents a unique interpretation of the relationships between the central couples from some of his well-known works.


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.
