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 August 2022 My Choice has been selected by artist Andrew McLeod and is available to view until 31 August, 2022.
Andrew McLeod has been in Whanganui for the past few months as the Sarjeant Gallery’s Tylee Cottage artist-in-residence. His practice encompasses painting, digital art and printmaking. Regardless of the medium McLeod is working in at the time, his works are steeped in the history of art. McLeod’s work is held in public collections around the country and extensively exhibited both nationally and internationally since he graduated from Elam School of Fine Arts back in 1998. McLeod has also been awarded an Arts Foundation Award with a Patronage Donation from Gus and Irene Fisher, the McCahon House Artists’ Residency alongside this, being the most recent Tylee Cottage artist-in-residence here in Whanganui.
