Each month a member of our community is invited to browse our online collection and select six of their favourite artworks. Each My Choice selection, together with personal responses to the works, will be available to view on the Sarjeant Gallery website for one month at a time. The July 2022 My Choice has been selected by Nicole Gaffney and is available to view until 31 July, 2022.
