Prizewinning New Zealand Landscape Paintings from the Kelliher Art Award 1956-1977.

A survey of classic landscape paintings from the second half of the 20th century by some of the country’s best-known resident artists of the era. With the objective to capture the “essential character of the New Zealand scene and the ways of life of its people and thereby to develop a livelier appreciation of the fine arts and of the infinitely varied aspects of our land.”

Join us as we hear more about the collection from the curator of the Kelliher Arts Trust, Christopher Johnstone on Saturday the 9th of March at 2pm- all welcome.
