Worldwide Alternatives find focus in Whanganui

Whanganui Quay School of the Arts’ latest photographic exhibition Alternatives, 2014 has brought together artists from all over the world.

Artists from Russia, Australia, Switzerland and Belgium, as well as photographers and students from the United States and New Zealand, including UCOL students and faculty from the Quay School of the Arts and Graphic Design School in Whanganui and the Photography & Design curriculum at the Palmerston North campus are taking part.

The oldest exhibitor may well be 75 year old Whanganui artist Rosalie Gwilliam.

The biennial exhibition features a wide range of photographic explorations including pinhole camera images, plastic Holga camera pictures and a sampling of various antique processes such as Cyanotypes, Gum Prints, Polaroid processes and cross processed methods. Also on display will be a range of contemporary digital explorations and inventive collage techniques.

Alternatives 2014 is sponsored by Whanganui UCOL’s Quay School of the Arts and will open on Wednesday 16 July at 5:30 pm and continues until 26 July at the UCOL Edith Gallery on Taupo Quay.

The exhibition opening includes a prize giving where gifts of merit in photographic media, will be awarded to photography students.

Exhibition coordinator and Quay School Lecturer Rita Dibert says, “This is an opportunity for the public to view both the advanced Photography students from the Quay School and advocates of the photographic medium from well outside our usual sphere of viewing from around the world.”

“Everyone is invited and encouraged to view the exhibition. “I promise you will be entertained and delighted!”

When: Wednesday 16 July Opening and continues Tuesdays through Saturdays, 11am-1pm to 26 July, 2014.
