Day Trip to Ashburton and Timaru

Day Trip to Ashburton and Timaru


Past event


We would like to invite all our Friends to join us this summer as we go south to visit the newly-opened Ashburton Art Gallery and the Aigantighe Art Gallery in Timaru.

For many of us it will be first look at the Ashburton gallery, where the main exhibition is Nigel Brown’s I AM/WE ARE, showing many of his iconic text enriched works. In Timaru, the Aigantighe is showing Painter, Euan Macleod’s first major touring exhibition. New Zealand-born and now Australia-based, Macleod has won several major Australian art awards, including the Archibald Prize. Toured by the Tauranga Art Gallery, the works ‘take us on a journey not only through the physical landscape but also through states of mind and being’. So come and join us for an enjoyable day out with the Friends. More details to come.

$75 cost includes transport, morning tea, lunch and entry to the galleries.
