A and P: art goes country

10 November – 3 December 2006

Timed to coincide with the ‘country coming to town’ for the opening of this year’s New Zealand Cup and Show Week, the Gallery’s A & P Show brings together a diverse selection of artworks connected to the theme of rural New Zealand. While the exhibition includes some significant historical works, its main focus is on work by contemporary and emerging New Zealand artists, with the aim of recreating something of the mayhem and festivity of the local Canterbury Show.
