The Gallery has been extended the privilege of hosting an exhibition of the estate works of the late Malcolm Harrison who passed away at his home on Waiheke 10 years ago.
Malcolm was an outstanding textile artist whose work was collected by major New Zealand institutions and galleries and frequently commissioned for public spaces. The exhibition on Waiheke will include major quilt works, tapestries, assemblages, small sculpture, painted works on paper, poetry plus illustrations and writings for children's books.
Here's the Herald article recently describing the exhibition and some of the background to the show. A Touch of inspiration...
Following its initial opening on Waiheke, the exhibition will travel to other galleries within Auckland and then further afield - launching our Gallery's first travelling exhibition.
