Exhibition proceeds to go towards temple bell

9:06 am on 22 April 2010

A Whanganui art gallery is holding an exhibition to help the Ratana temple at Raetihi buy a bell.

WH Milbank Gallery director Bill Milbank says he was constantly aware of the building while growing up in the Waimarino township.

Images of the temple by Ans Westra and the late Robin Morrison and others by artists like photographer Laurence Aberhard, sculptor Matt Pine and painter Megan Campbell, make up the Church on the Hill exhibition.

Mr Milbank told Waatea News the gallery and the artists will give the temple a koha from any of the work sold.
