Various Artists

    This exhibition of works produced in any medium during the past year presents 75 works in a wide range of styles and genres that have been selected from entries received from the length of New Zealand and also from artists as far afield as the UK and Ireland. It is both open theme and a celebration of another “open” - the decision of the Academy not to close the Academy Galleries at 1 Queens Wharf in central Wellington.

    At the Gala opening on the 5th October, Caroline Kelly’s Release received the President’s Prize and Diane Taylor’s Game on at the Stadium won the Curator’s Prize. Merit Awards were given to Iwen Yong’s ‘Rees Valley’, Reks Motokushi’s Discovering Peace, Sarah Albisser’s Splash, Charlotte Hird’s Aoraki at Dusk and Diana Chetwin’s The Next Wave.
