June 2021: Jack Mitchell-Anyon, local business owner and musician
Each month a member of our community is invited to browse our online collection and select six of their favourite artworks. Each ‘My Choice’ selection, together with personal responses to the works, will be available to view on the Sarjeant Gallery website for one month at a time. The June 2021 My Choice has been selected by Jack Mitchell-Anyon and is available to view until 30 June 2021.
“I grew up in Whanganui, got expelled from high school and then was flushed off to finish up at Wellington High School. Completing that, I did what many do and got my ‘degree in hospitality’ (working in the industry). Chasing a cool little scene in Whanganui based around the old art school and a rebel underground venue called ‘Stink Magnetic’ – I came back. I ran a venue called Space Monster and now a little café/shop called Article. I love to garden, play a mean surf guitar – no kids, but one cute little dog called Delphi.” – Jack Mitchell-Anyon
