2017 Belton, Smith & Associates Ltd – Whanganui Arts Review

4 March – 14 May 2017

The 2017 Belton, Smith & Associates Ltd Whanganui Arts Review is one of the longest running community exhibitions of its type and is a valued event in the Whanganui arts calendar. With a tremendous array of artwork in a variety of media on display, the skills of local practitioners are there for all visitors to behold; and it is the one event in the Sarjeant’s programming where items are for sale, allowing members of the public to purchase a work.

The Sarjeant greatly appreciates the contribution of our principal sponsor Belton, Smith & Associates Ltd, who have committed to supporting this year’s event. This sponsorship extends to the Open Award of $2000 and three Highly Commended Awards valued at $500 each.

The Gallery would also like to thank our Merit Award sponsors provided this year by: Central City Pharmacy, Friends of the Sarjeant Gallery, Rivercity Picture Framers Ltd., Recaffeinate, Renata’s Art & Framing, Ceramic Lounge, Wanganui Garden Services Ltd, WH Milbank Gallery and The Whanganui River Traders. We are very grateful for the continued support from these quality local businesses and associations. We wish to express our thanks once again to the Whanganui District Council Youth Committee for committing $250 towards this event in the form of the DUB.DEE.SEE Youth Recognition Award.

Artworks of numerous types comprise this year’s offering and were selected by: Editor of Small Bore Books and former Senior Curator at the Dowse Art Museum, Emma Bugden; former Tylee Cottage artist in residence, Glen Hayward; and Curator & Public Programmes Manager at the Sarjeant, Greg Donson. Judging the awards for the 2017 Review is Kim Paton, Director of Objectspace in Auckland.

The Sarjeant staff are thrilled to host this event in our temporary surrounds and we wish to thank all of the artists who have taken part in this year’s event – proof once again that Whanganui is indeed a thriving centre of arts and culture.
