Our Art Gallery includes a large collection of Grahame Sydney, who is one of New Zealand’s senior artists, best known for his landscapes of Central Otago. His work spans over four decades and encompasses oils, egg tempera, watercolours, lithographs, etching, photography and, more recently, film. Rarely exhibiting, Sydney’s works are held in the collections of the major galleries and museums of New Zealand, and in private collections through-out the world. Our gallery has a large collection of his lithographs, ranging from landscapes, portraits and nudes.
Grahame is also the author of several books and has been awarded an ONZM for his services to painting and enjoys support of both Canon and Lexus.
The Wanaka Wearable Creations Show was first held in 2001. Warbirds & Wheels has on display in their Art Gallery, some of these creations by local artists. The display includes outfits from their show in 2015. The 2016 show has just been held, and our display will be updated soon with these new creations.
