Exhibition a Success by Mark Hotton

“The Grahame Sydney Regions of the Heart exhibition, which ends at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery on Sunday, was a big hit with visitors, gallery director Priscilla Pitts said. Since the exhibition opened in late November, 28,742 people had visited the gallery, including 5063 visitors from out of town.

This compared with 22,629 local residents and 3935 visitors for the corresponding period last year, she said. “We always knew Regions of the Heart would strike a chord with visitors, especially those who love the Otago region,” Ms Pitts said.
