The Pattillo Project 2020

Dr Kathryn Wightman:
Digital Parent

Digital Parent by Dr Kathryn Wightman is the inaugural Pattillo Project. The new work created for this exhibition is Wightman’s largest and most ambitious to date and utilises her remarkable technique that fuses glass, printmaking and digital technologies. Also featured will be figurative works in the same vein as ‘Austin’, the work for which she won the Open Award at the 2019 Whanganui Arts Review.

This project was made possible with the generous support of Pattillo and Creative New Zealand.
