Welcome to the Selwyn Gallery website.
The Malvern Community Arts Council is looking for artists and art works to promote to the people of Selwyn in 2018.
Our Selwyn Gallery in Darfield showcases a different exhibition each month from a wide range of artists and their work: printmakers, photographers, painters, ceramicists, sculptors, and fibre artists. Several recent exhibitions have had significant commercial success, including a solo show by emerging artist Henry Turner, and a charity auction of works by Maurice Askew.
The MCAC Gallery Committee continues to seek out a greater depth and range of exhibitions—an ongoing challenge, as our goal is to draw the majority of our exhibiting artists from those already based in the Selwyn Region.
We have two exhibition spaces: Gallery 1 provides a month-long exhibition space for high-quality art works, while Gallery 2 provides a forum which supports local artists on an immediate sales basis. The recently conceived ‘Art for Hire’ scheme provides additional display and sales opportunities through a regular rotation of works at The Oaks of Darfield (a local fine dining restaurant and B&B) and The Terrace Café and Bar in Darfield.
The Gallery Committee selects the programme for Gallery 1 each July from artists in Selwyn District, and from across New Zealand. If you are interested in exhibiting for 2018, please click on the link, below and submit your proposal before July 2017. We will respond to all prospective exhibitors after our July meeting to let you know the outcome of our decisions.
