Regroup Reflect Regenerate

Medal Artists of New Zealand 25th Anniversary Exhibition

Celebrate the art of small-scale sculpture.

Regroup Reflect Regenerate: Medal Artists of New Zealand 25th Anniversary Exhibition displays the work of contemporary medal art featuring more than 200 medals crafted by 33 New Zealand artists over the last 25 years.

Medals traditionally commemorate achievement but they are also works of art. The medals in this exhibition embrace freedom of design including choice of subject, material and composition. They include the more recent development of the object medal: a small three-dimensional sculpture.

Medal Artists of New Zealand members come from a variety of backgrounds including silver-smithing, ceramics, jewellery, painting and sculpture.

The artists featured in the exhibition are: John Andrew, Frances Battersby, Nigel Brown, Bing Dawe, Louise Dentice, John Edgar, Robert Ellis, Fatu Feu’u, Charlotte Fisher, Marian Fountain, Fiona Garlick, David Guerin, Paul Hartigan, Bill Hayes, Christine Hellyar, Samantha Lissette, Christine Massey, Richard, Mathieson, Mary McIntyre, Hamish McWhannell, Richard McWhannell, Neil Miller, Juliette Milne, Stanley Palmer, Alan Preston, Louise Purvis, Michael Reed, Terry Stringer, Wallace Sutherland, Marte Szirmay, Greer Twiss, Jim Wheeler, and Peter Woods.

Developed and toured by Medal Artists New Zealand with support from Progressive Castings Ltd, Regal Ltd and the Wallace Arts Trust.
