Past exhibition, from April 16-November 7, 2010.
Trust Waikato/ Barry Hopkins/ Waikato Museum/ The Friends Collections : Recent Acquisitions: 2007-2009.
Newcomers is an exhibition introducing you to the more recent acquisitions from the Trust Waikato, Barry Hopkins, Waikato Museum and private collections that have found their new home here.
Works of art are collected for the purpose of creating a visual and cultural footprint of the Waikato at this point in history. Art works arrive from the 19th, 20th and 21st century offering us a pretty reasonable idea about the land, cultural, political and even spiritual climate of the times we live in.
Selected works by:
Margot Philips b.1907 d.1988
Adele Younghusband b.1890 d. 1965
The Underwater Collective
Alister Agan Selliman
Jean Fairburn b.1912 d.2010
Jean Fairburn passed away on April 13th 2010. She was an important part of the Waikato's art history and we honour her memory with the work Spring Plum Tree in this exhibition. Our deepest sympathies go out to her family.
The Director and her staff would like to thank the Trust Waikato Puna o Waikato, Stuart Stubbs, Barry Hopkins and The Friends of the Museum.
