National Exhibition

The 2012 Creative Fibre National Exhibition will be hung in the Millennium Public Art Gallery, Blenheim, from Saturday 24 March to Sunday 29 April.
The Millennium Art Gallery is the public art gallery for the Marlborough region, located in the centre of Blenheim. The Gallery, which opened in December 1999, operates as a not for profit organisation, governed by a Charitable Trust and professionally managed. The operation is supported by an extensive network of volunteers

An average of 23 exhibitions are presented per year and these are accompanied by public programmes such as artist and curator talks and educational workshops. At the Gallery you will see work from leading local, national and international artists in a fantastic range of regularly changing art exhibitions, programmes and events.

Exhibitions feature New Zealand and overseas artists and have included the work of significant artists such as Ralph Hotere, Bill Culbert and Frances Hodgkins in both nationally touring and locally generated exhibitions.

Emphasis is also placed on high quality community-focused exhibitions that are developed in conjunction with other local events and organizations, and display the work of Marlborough artists, iwi and school children.

Art displayed at the Blenheim gallery ranges from paintings, photography and sculpture to a variety of forms of applied arts and craft.
