2019 pattillo Whanganui Arts Review

9 March – 12 May 2019

The annual Whanganui Arts Review is the longest running event of its type in the country. In 2019, the Sarjeant Gallery is thrilled to start the 31st edition of this much-loved open call exhibition with a new sponsor and partner in Anne Pattillo and her company pattillo. Supported by a strong group of Whanganui businesses, this year’s Review represents a fresh start for the juried exhibition, not only in terms of enhanced prize money for the winner of the Open Award, but also in the way it will benefit that award winner in the longer term. In addition to a generous prize, pattillo have also sponsored the pattillo project. This project is one where the winner of the Open Award will receive a solo exhibition at the Sarjeant Gallery.

The 2019 patillo Whangnui Arts Review is open to any artist, working in any media in the Whanganui region, including Ruapehu and Rangitikei and all areas that link to the Whanganui River. This makes the Arts Review a true reflection of the Whanganui region’s creative energy.
