Glenn Jowitt: a Tribute

5 August 2014 to 28 September 2014, Upper Lobby

As a further tribute, a selection of photographs from Glenn Jowitt’s Pacific Images exhibition will remain on show in the upper lobby of the Pah Homestead, TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre.

With great sadness the James Wallace Arts Trust acknowledges the death of master photographer Glenn Jowitt on 23 July 2014. We extend our heartfelt condolences to his family. We also acknowledge the mighty contribution he made to many communities and cultures especially Pasifika with whom he shared so much of his life and work.

Glenn’s generosity of spirit and the loving way in which he shared his unique vision of New Zealand, the islands of the Pacific and their peoples, will live forever in his wonderful images.

I am honoured to have been associated with Glenn for many years during which we acquired key photographs. Further we were able to add an extremely significant body of his work to the Wallace Arts Trust Collection in the months before this premature and very sad loss.

Steve Rood: Post Headlands Residency Discussion

16 October 2014, 1:30pm, Drawing Room, Reservations required (no charge)

As part of ARTWEEK 2014 join artist Steve Rood for a Q & A session, post completion of his recent residency at Headlands Centre for the Arts in Sausalito, California.

Rood’s residency was made possible by the James Wallace Arts Trust and Fulbright New Zealand, as he was the recipient of the Fulbright-Wallace Arts Trust Award 2013.

Rood decamped to California in March and has returned with a new body of work that seeks to expand notions of the photographic and explore a transitional place between photography and video. Central to Rood’s work is the conviction that Eadweard Muybridge's innovative Horse in Motion work in the 1870s not only provided photography’s transition from still image to moving image, but also offers valuable and as yet un-utilised insights to photography’s evolution to digital.
