One Hundred New Zealand Painters

This exhibition is now closed

One hundred pictures from 100 New Zealand painters were assembled from appeals to all art societies in New Zealand and to the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts in Wellington as part of the Pan Pacific Arts Festival. Each society was asked to select and forward two works by contemporary working members, not paintings from their own collections. The exhibition therefore provided a very broad indication of contemporary painting in New Zealand. All styles were represented from realism to abstract expressionism. This exhibition was shown alongside Australian Painting of the 19th and 20th Century. 

Artists included Owen Lee, Ivy Fife, W A Sutton, Russell Clarke, Ted Bracey, Juliet Peter, Evelyn Page, Eileen Mayo, Shona McFarlane and Elizabeth Stevens.

Admission was half a crown and the Gallery stayed open each evening during the Festival from 7:30 – 9:30pm.
