Holy Trinity Cathedral is now home to the John Wilson Gallery in memory of a long-standing and well-loved member of its community. John Wilson was a faithful supporter of the cathedral and, over many years of dedicated service, a prolific contributor to the vision, construction and preservation of the cathedral precinct we enjoy today.
The John Wilson Gallery houses works of art by Toss Woollaston, Ian Scott, Michael Browne, Peter Gibson Smith, Eion Stevens, Denys Watkins, Philip Trusttum and Reuben Pillsbury. These various works have been provided by the James Wallace Arts Trust on a permanent revolving loan basis.
The John Wilson Gallery is open for all to view during cathedral opening hours. It is a peaceful space for art lovers to view some truly special pieces. These pieces join the other great works of art, architecture and sculpture which form the fabric of the cathedral and its precinct: the stained-glass windows by artists including Nigel Brown, Robert Ellis and Shane Cotton, the nave font by sculptor Ann Robinson, the Bishop Selwyn Chapel by architects Fearon Hay, and many more.
