National Exhibition

 ‘Windows on White’ an exhibition by the Aotearoa Felters in the Millenium Gallery, 2008

The Millenium Public Art Gallery is funded by a Marlborough District Council grant, fundraising and sponsorship. There is a gallery shop offering local and New Zealand made artworks, jewellery and books.

The Art Gallery receives conceptual and practical support from their patron Michael Seresin, a world-renowned New Zealand born cinematographer based in Marlborough.

Cressida Bishop, Director of the Gallery is looking forward to the National Exhibition being staged there. She is supportive of all forms of applied arts and craft being showed to the public.

Director Cressida Bishop and Exhibition Conveenor Rose Pelvin discuss plans for next year’s National Exhibition

Creative Fibre Festival 2012 is very appreciative of the opportunity to mount the National Exhibition at this Gallery. Not all galleries welcome textile exhibits and many do not have the expertise to show them well. The Millennium, however, has had considerable experience, and success, showing both felting and hand weaving at a national level as well as Maori weaving in flax and other fibres.
