We are thrilled to bring this travelling exhibition from the Waiheke Community Art Gallery to the South Island which highlights the life and work of one of New Zealand’s most acclaimed textile artists Malcolm Harrison (1941-2007).

This exhibition showcases Harrison’s finely developed craftsmanship and artistic skills across mediums from working drawings through to finished creations.
