Wallace Art Awards 2015 Selected Finalist Travelling exhibition

Wallace Arts Trust Collection Gallery

20th February - 24th April 2016

The Wallace Gallery Morrinsville is one of only three venues nationally to host the touring exhibition of the 24th Annual Wallace Art Awards winners and finalists, the premier contemporary art awards in New Zealand. This annual awards exhibition provides a snapshot of what is happening nation-wide in the contemporary art scene.

Sir James Wallace established the Annual Wallace Art Awards 24 years ago. These Awards are the longest surviving and largest annual art awards of their kind in New Zealand, with a value amounting to over $195,000. The four winners receive valuable residencies at prestigious institutions in the US and Switzerland. Many works by Award winners and finalists are purchased by the Trust each year to add to the Collection.
