Fine Arts Whanganui Gallery is operated by a group of dedicated practicing artists. Its mission is to provide an experience for art lovers, which is not just a visual feast, but also an opportunity to purchase fine art of exceptional quality.
The Gallery’s artist members include painters, photographers, printmakers, ceramic artists and sculptors. Their work ranges from the finest realist painting and impressionism, to abstract paintings and sculptural work of outstanding finesse. Printmakers produce woodcuts and etchings, A jeweller and a book illustrator provide beautiful gift possibilities. The painters work in oils, watercolours and acrylics, with wood and hard-stone sculpture sharing space in a modern, clean, airy gallery that displays their work in its rare elegant beauty.
At Fine Arts Whanganui Gallery, you will encounter art of the finest quality, not only from our members but also from guest artists who exhibit in our gallery on a regular schedule. These guest exhibitions bring the excitement of new and innovative excellence from local and nationally acclaimed artists.
