Sarjeant Gallery online collection microsite

Web Crit

Paul Rowe, Vernon Systems, New Zealand

The Sarjeant Gallery Te Whare o Rehua Whanganui is a regional New Zealand gallery with a small team and no web development or IT staff. In collaboration with Vernon Systems, the Sarjeant Gallery has launched a stand-alone online collection website within a tight budget of $US 20,000. The website has also been designed to serve as an in-gallery kiosk, with a large touchscreen in their temporary gallery providing access for visitors to the entire Sarjeant Gallery collection via the “Sarjeant Mosaic” page.
