Take yourself on a flight of fancy with Wayne Youle's latest exhibition Look Mum No Hands.
Ann Betts had a long association with the Robert McDougall Art Gallery and Christchurch Art Gallery. She was first appointed as education officer by Rodney Wilson in 1979. This was when the Gallery developed professionally, with new positions being established that included education, curatorial and conservation roles.
The new year started with the Friends’ fantastic summer trip, visiting exhibitions at two of Canterbury’s regional art galleries.
This year’s weekly ArtBite programme is about to start! From Friday 10 February, we will again offer a weekly presentation of a work on display here at Te Puna o Waiwhetu. The aim of these 30-minute talks is to give you an art break in the middle of your day. We know you’re busy, so this isn’t a long lecture meant to take up too much of your time. And they’re free. With a new work presented each Friday at 12.30pm, the information will be fresh so you can impress your friends during your weekend socialising.
We’re open every day except Christmas Day, so come in and see us.
As we approach the first anniversary of the reopening of the Gallery, it seems like a good time to celebrate a year’s progress in the life of the city.
