Bishopdale Primary School's art experts are back, and they've been checking out William Wegman: Being Human.
Smoking twin-guitar free-form skuzz, metronomic neo-Kraut vamping, or loose-limbed hayriding hootenanny? One hand Loose is all of the above and more.

It was with much sadness that the staff of Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū heard of the sudden death of local art historian Julie King in early December. Julie had developed a close relationship with the Gallery over the years, not only as a curator, researcher, writer, speaker and key member of the Friends of Christchurch Art Gallery, but also as a regular visitor to exhibitions, talks and events.
Take yourself on a flight of fancy with Jess Johnson and Simon Ward’s latest artist project. Be in to win flights and accommodation for you and three mates to Singapore, thanks to Singapore Airlines. To be in to win, just visit the Gallery and take a photo in our custom Jess Johnson designed selfie booth (located in the Bayleys Knight Frank Foyer).
