The House That James Built: art from the James Wallace Arts Trust

 

A suite of very contemporary works from The James Wallace Art Trust, including work by Jarad Bryant, Trenton Garratt, Richard Bryant, Andrew McLeod, Simon Esling, Rachel Wells, Martin Whitworth, Katherine Claypole and Douglas Wright.

James Wallace began collecting New Zealand art in the mid-1960s, particularly that of emerging artists.

In 1992 the Collection was transferred to a Charitable Fund with the aim of assisting emerging artists through patronage and promotion via exhibitions.

The Trust now owns over 4,000 works as a cultural resource for present and future generations.

These works are available on a loan basis to institutions and galleries throughout the country.
