I inherited a love of art from my mother. I am lucky enough to own my favourite pieces of art that hang proudly in our home. They are an Elizabeth Thomson from the Astrophysics series and a very early Karl Maughan. My wife bullied me to join the Foundation in 2008, and low and behold I actually enjoy being a part of it! I love the success of the Foundation and contributing to it – it’s been good fun.

Gallery Happenings: Grayson Gilmour

In early March we were lucky enough to have the incredibly talented Grayson Gilmour performing at the Gallery, supported by the equally talented Purple Pilgrims and New Dawn. I love these gigs, but there is a lot of work to be done behind the scenes to make sure that, by the time the public walk in the door, the foyer is gig ready. The process normally feels like a long, slow marathon with a sprint at the final corner. So here’s a guide to how you too can get the NZI Foyer gig-ready in five (or six) easy steps.
