White Night at TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre at the Pah Homestead

The Homestead projects imagery created by Tanya Ruka onto the exterior wall of Pah Homestead. Ruka explores the concept of i nga waa o mua, ideas of identity and entanglement and the bringing together of different elements to create a whole. The work occupies a liminal digital space - a continuum in a constant state of flux.

Also on the night catch the Trust's current exhibitions including:

Non-Representational Art from the Wallace Arts Trust Collection: An inimitable survey of abstract art dating from Philip Trusttum's 1968 The Drum (No.5) to recent work by artists including Nicola Donald and Lianne Edwards.  Highlights include a beautiful loose hanging canvas work in violet by the late Don Peebles, reminiscent of a living breathing being; Allen Maddox's 1978 work I Am Not Even Enjoying Doing It; Michael Parekowhai's marquette for Te Tuhi's Atarangi II; and a superb example from Milan Mrkusich's Elements series.

Recent Acquisitions: Part II is a display of the Trust's most recent acquisitions including a new work by Steve Carr of catching mitts carved from wood; ceramic popcorn candy by Madeline Child; Brit Bunkley's gnomes encased in resin, and a recent large painting by Graham Fletcher.

Max Gimblett exhibition: Ten works by Max Gimblett from the Wallace Arts Trust Collection to coincide with his exhibition at the Gow Langsford and John Leech Galleries entitled The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze.
