Come to the TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre at the Pah Homestead to see the winners and finalists from the 19th Annual Wallace Art Awards!

The exhibition is divided into two parts - one showing the winners and a selection of the finalists that will be on display until 3 October before it travels to TheNewDowse in Wellington, and the other showing a Salon des Refusés of the rest of the finalists that will be on display until 31 October.

The awards encompass contemporary New Zealand painting, sculpture, drawing and unique photography. They are designed to encourage and develop the visual arts in New Zealand and to reward those producing outstanding work. Amounting to over $160,000, they are the longest surviving and largest of their kind in New Zealand. They differ from other important New Zealand art prizes in that they aim to provide challenging opportunities and broadening experiences to the four major winners by way of residencies at top-class international institutions.

This year there were over 400 applications received, with 106 chosen as finalists. The judges were three distinguished New Zealand artists– Philip Trusttum, Sara Hughes and Peter Gibson-Smith. The Awards were presented by the Hon. John Banks QSO, Mayor of Auckland City. The The Wallace Arts Trust Paramount Award winner was Sam Mitchell.

The TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre is open Tuesday to Friday from 11am - 4pm, and Saturday, Sunday and public holidays from 10am - 5pm.
