Old New World at the Sarjeant Gallery
The dates for the Old New World show at the Sarjeant Art Gallery, Whanganui, have been confirmed as 15 December 2012 to 17 February 2013.
It’s great that the 45 image show is going to such a beautiful gallery, with a strong tradition of showing photography. It’s an opportunity for anyone in the lower North Island, or passing through Whanganui to see the work.
I’ve recently decided that exhibitions are rather like exquisite ballet performances.
It’s excellent to have the Old New World book that will have the lifetime of a publication. But a show is an ephemeral event – hopefully excellent and inspiring, but a one-off occasion that remains only in memory. To have a touring show for Old New World feels like a series of special opportunities to show the work to wider audiences. I’ll post other dates for the show as they come to hand.
