 The Subject in the Land now showing at Auckland Art Gallery Toi O Tamaki features works by well known New Zealand artists from the period 'being after McCahon'. The exhibition features work by Colin McCahon (as pictured), his contemporaries alongside current artists including work by McCahon House Residency Artists alumni - Daniel Malone. A show not to be missed - open until November 2017. 


Recent Event - School holiday workshops 

During the July school holidays, children enjoyed exploring and learning about the Cubism work that Colin McCahon had created within the very house where the holiday programme was held. Under the guidance of Alice Ng participants recreated Cubism paintings using paper and collage to make 3D sculptural works. 
The workshops were a great success and we are already planning our next school holiday workshops. Watch this space!
