The inaugural Whanganui National Art Exhibition and Award in 2009 was an encouraging success, viewed by 670 people over an exhibition period of two weeks, and four patrons bought works. The organisers, the Whanganui National Art Exhibition and Award Trust looks forward to the 2010 event.
The organising of the second Whanganui National Art Exhibition is under way. Last years sponsor Optiv101 Fine Arts and Multimedia Studios has come on board again, and the trust has also secured funding from Creative Communities New Zealand and the Wanganui District Council.
The exhibition is scheduled for September 17 to October 6 2010, at the Wanganui Community Arts Centre.
Entry is open to all artists living and working in New Zealand, and one work will be eligible per artist for an overall $30 entry fee.
