New Exhibitions

Recent Acquisitions 2015 – 2017

   24 August 2017 – 24 September 2017

   

 York Hutchinson by Allan Barns-Graham

The Tairāwhiti Museum’s fine arts collection is bespoke for this region, and to be shared in perpetuity. The cornerstone for developing a meaningful museum collection is proactive and selective gathering and preserving of historical ‘values’.

Continued growth of the fine arts collection is often due to the generosity of sponsors and donors. Accepting incoming works is not a given no matter how generous an offer. All must first be processed and measured for their significance, relevance, educational worth and whether storage requirements are adequate. In a public collection, an artwork should ideally lend itself to a myriad of differing uses, becoming more than the artist’s statement.

This exhibition of artworks or ‘values’ has been selected from works gathered since 2015. They explore unchartered chapters that thread and whisper through the fabric of local communities, encapsulating signature styles that most local visitors will instantly respond to and recognize.
