Rita Angus: Life & Vision exhibition

Thoughtful and well written blog post on the Rita Angus: Life & Vision exhibition by the art historian Cheryl Bernstein. More on Rita Angus at Te Papa.

John Leech Gallery presents ‘Carey’s Bay 2000’, a series of portrait paintings by Martin Ball of Ralph Hotere; New Zealand’s most important living artist. This powerful exhibition, named after the small coastal town 10 minutes drive out of Dunedin where Hotere lives, provides a dynamic record of Ball’s encounter with the artist at Carey’s Bay, in 2000. Ball’s elegantly rendered representations express the respect and esteem he holds for Hotere and his work. Exhibition on 28 April – 22 May 2009
