Philip Trusttum: Selected Works 1962-1979

This exhibition is now closed

This exhibition by local painter Philip Trusttum promises to be one of the highlights on the Gallery's 1982 calendar. The work will reinforce to the viewer that Trusttum is one of New Zealand's finest colourists. The artist has always been concerned with projecting the living quality that stimulates the art process rather than producing "just art". It is in this context that much of the work's vitality emerges. The nature of the exhibition itself enables one to appreciate the various stylistic changes that occur throughout the artist's development.

The exhibition is arranged by the Sarjeant Art Gallery and has proved extremely popular with the public at each of its venues.
