Presented by Arts Whakatāne and Whakatāne District Council, this national award aims to support artists by presenting 3D work across a range of disciplines; and to engage a national discussion about contemporary 3D arts practice and its presentation in New Zealand.
The Molly Morpeth Canaday Award 3D provides a professional platform for artists working in the areas of sculpture, installation and contemporary craft.
These awards have been made possible through the generous support of the Molly Morpeth Canaday Fund, established by Frank Canaday in memory of his wife, Molly Morpeth Canaday. The Trust has been a major supporter of the arts in Whakatāne for over twenty five years.
