Grasses by Aileen Fisher


We leave Aotearoa New Zealand today with an American poet and an English painter, brought together just for fun. Grasses by Aileen Fisher (1906-2002) is read by Karin Bathgate who works as a Visitor Host here at the Gallery. 

We hope it makes you smile for the full 20 second hand-washing routine.
