Christchurch Art Gallery was saddened to hear of the recent death of Alan Pearson. Originally from Liverpool in England, Pearson moved to Aotearoa New Zealand as a young man in 1956 and studied at the University of Canterbury School of Fine Arts. Totally committed to his practice, and never one to shy away from confrontation, he painted full-time from 1978 and exhibited extensively throughout New Zealand. He lived and worked mainly in Ōtautahi Christchurch before moving to Australia in the early 2000s.
Visitors to the Gallery will be spoilt for choice this month, with some of the best art in New Zealand on display alongside a rich calendar of public programmes.
In addition to amazing art and exhibitions, our impressive spring events calendar brings together a range of artist talks, films and activities, so there’s bound to be something for everyone to enjoy.
