The Calder & Lawson Gallery is home to the Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts diverse visual arts programme within the University of Waikato. The exhibitions feature a range of contemporary art from leading regional and national artists. The exhibition programme also includes the display of artwork from the University of Waikato Art Collection which is on rotational display across the University‘s Hamilton and Tauranga campuses.
In addition to the exhibitions and events in the Calder & Lawson Gallery a selection of works of contemporary New Zealand art from the James Wallace Charitable Arts Trust are displayed in other spaces throughout the Academy.
The Calder & Lawson Gallery regularly works with New Zealand artists and curators to develop our exhibition program. Submissions to contribute to this are most welcome as well as enquiries into the University of Waikato Art Collection which can be directed to the Art Collection Curator, firstname.lastname@example.org.
