2018 Sarjeant Gallery Te Whare o Rehua Whanganui Arts Review

 
 The winner of the Arts Review Open Award is ‘Breathe’ by Kathryn Wightman. Judge Karl Chitham said the work drew him back again and again – beautiful and full of depth and lustre, it hints at memory and nostalgia. Incredibly it is kiln formed glass with sintered glass powder. Congratulations Kathryn!

Always a diverse selection of work across all media being made in the Whanganui region.

The three-day program will comprise lectures, lecture-demonstrations, workshops, panel discussions, a delegate’s project and numerous social events.

Leading contemporary national and international artists such as Katharine Coleman, Laura Donefer and Ben Young are contributing, amongst others soon to be announced.
