Whanganui has a significant photographic heritage and the Sarjeant Gallery, our public gallery, a nationally significant collection.
Frank Denton was commissioned by the mayor of Whanganui to collect late 19C & 20C International fine art photography for the Sarjeant Gallery collection and did so from 1919 -1926. In 1925, 87 prints entered the collection.
The Tylee Cottage Artist-in-Residence scheme began in Wanganui in 1986. The following artists have been recipients: Laurence Aberhart (1986), Anne Noble (1989),
Ans Westra (1993), George Krause [USA] (1997/8), Paul Johns (2005),
Ben Cauchi (2005/6), Andrew Ross (2009), Ann Shelton (2012), Richard Orjis (2014) & Roberta Thornley(2015)
Although there are no state funded photography galleries in New Zealand, City Gallery, Wellington, has demonstrated a particular dedication to the medium.
Working in a globalized world ours is a client-based rather than a regionally-restricted practice.
We travel frequently* to meet with gallery artists, curators, collectors and attend key events.
restraints mean we do not perform insurance valuations. Such
valuations are more complex than might appear and require examination of each work. See PDF outlining our position.
Likewise, we are unable to respond to student requests and unsolicited material from photographers unless some free time becomes available.
