SARGEANT GALLERY AWARDS TWO 5-MONTH RESIDENCIES AT HISTORIC TYLEE COTTAGE, WHANGANUI

CONOR CLARKE AND KATE FITZHARRIS 


After securing a generous Arts Grant from Creative New Zealand, the Sarjeant Gallery are pleased to announce that a New Zealand photographic artist based in Berlin and an Otago-based artist have each been awarded five month residencies with Whanganui’s Sarjeant Gallery Te Whare O Rehua over the next year. 

Clarke will create new photographic work inspired by the Whanganui River and its qualities.  Mr Donson says the river has been an inspiration for a number of photographers whose work is part of the gallery’s extensive collection including Frank Denton, Anne Noble, Ans Westra and Andrew Ross. “We’re looking forward to seeing the unique perspective that Conor will bring to Whanganui during her time here.” Clarke is due to take up her five month residency in September this year.
