Phil Dickson  

Wellington art icon and long time gallery artist and friend Phil Dickson sadly passed away unexpectedly at the end of March.

Phil was a talented and popular artist and was heavily involved in Wellington art, contributing his time and expertise to the NZAFA, Watercolour NZ and the Hutt and Wellington art clubs.   Phil painted in both oils and watercolours with equal proficiency. In 2014 the Gallery helped him launch his art book 'Phil Dickson's Wellington' with an exhibition showing many of the paintings in the book.

Our condolences to his wife Jenny and family.

Upcoming Exhibitions

We've had a hold on exhibitions this year thanks to covid but are planning a  retrospective for Heimler and Proc in May and then Bill MacCormick and Graham Moeller. I'll email dates when they are confirmed.


Escha van den Bogerd commissions

Escha van den Bogerd is free for commission paintings for the next few months.

Many of you will know Escha's work, especially her figurative series and her watching the old masters series. She could paint you watching your favourite painting.
