The Art of the Letter Exhibition

September 11, 2023 @ 10:00 am - September 29, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Dear 26 is a great example of international collaboration and creativity, bringing together writers from different countries in an expansive anthology of characters, authors and novels.

This global group, includes Whanganui-based authors Jayne Workman and Catherine Macdonald. What is Dear 26? We answer with another question—What would Quasimodo sayto the Queen of Hearts, Eeyore to Ebenezer Scrooge, or Sam Spade to Sherlock Holmes?

These possible conversations are a tribute to the lost art of letter writing. Twenty-six writers created letters written by their choice of fictional characters. Each must start with the same randomly assigned letter of the alphabet. Read the glorious results at this Dear 26 exhibition.
