By ANNE TAYLOR Two women judges are expected to bring a new perspective to Aratoi s Wairarapa Review this December, an exhibition that has never pre- viously had an all-female judging panel. Jenny Neligan and Penney Moir from long established Wellington dealer gallery Bowen Galleries, will select artwork and allocate awards for the biannual exhibition. The review offers a premier award of $2000, and two highly commended awards of $1000 each, which will be announced on the opening night, Friday, December 16. There is also a $500 People s Choice Award that will be announced after the closing. This will be a great chance for us to see a whole range of works and some fresh new art, which is always a pleasure for us, says Jenny. This is the seventh Wairarapa Review to be staged in Masterton, the first shows being held at the Wairarapa Arts Centre. The review is open to artists living in Wairarapa. Work must have been completed in the past two years and not previously exhibited in the region. It may be 2-D or 3-D in any medium. Aratoi curator Bronwyn Reid said Jenny and Penney s presence will bring a different viewpoint . As a selected show, the review does reflect to some extent the judges personal tastes, she says. Jenny said she could not define the aspects she would be looking for when selecting and judging individ- ual works, but Bronwyn noted that practical considerations are a part of the decision making: The judges will also be selecting for the space here at Aratoi, and what works within it. For example, if we get a really large piece, that can limit what else is selected. For this reason, numbers of artworks on display are highly vari- able from year to year. There is no maximum size limit in this year s show. Previous judges have included Cam McCraken and Tim Walker, both directors of the Dowse. Painter Kate Small and ceramicist Janet Green are past winners. Artists may submit one work each, which must be received at Aratoi by Monday, December 12. Work not selected for the exhibition is eligible for the Salon de Refuse ´ exhibition, being run by Wai Art at the Carterton Events Centre from December 17 to February 5. The exhibition takes its name from French exhibitions of works not selected at the prestigious Salons in the 19th century. The 1863 Salon de Refuse ´ featured many works now regarded as masterpieces by artists such as Manet and Whistler. Contact Aratoi for information and entry forms, ph 06 370 0001.
