Special Announcement: Spring Exhibition
After much deliberation, the APAG Council and staff have made the difficult decision to not proceed with this year’s Annual Spring Exhibition. Although we have actively worked towards a potential solution that works around the issues we are currently dealing with, a number of factors beyond our control have meant that this is just not a possibility. The Annual Spring Exhibition has built up a stellar reputation over the last 64 years, and it is felt that we would be doing this a disservice if we were not able to deliver a show that matches our expectations, as well as those of our artists and the public. Please be assured that this is merely a one year hiatus, and the Spring Exhibition will return revitalised in 2016.
APAG Closed to the Public
Anderson Park Art Gallery has had to temporarily close its doors to the public as of the 30/01/14. The Invercargill City Council are investigating the susceptibility of all their buildings to seismic events, and the magnificent Neo-Georgian building we call home has unfortunately not met the current minimum standards required. Whilst further investigative work is carried out to enable planning for remedial work it has been decided the most responsible course of action is to close the doors to the public. The Gallery Council are in the process of working out the best way forward for the Gallery in respect to this situation.
Thank you to all those who have shown support for the Gallery and please be assured we will continue to keep you updated as developments come to hand.
Please contact us if you have any urgent enquiries.
Our 2015 AGM will be held at 5.30pm at the Southland Museum and Art Gallery
