Welcome to the Selwyn Gallery website.
We now have a Blog! Go to themalvernarts.tumblr.com
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.
