Whangarei Art Museum invite you to view 'Blast! Pat Hanly-the painter and his protests', toured by Lopdell House Gallery.

10 July – 5 September 2010

The story of New Zealand’s struggle to be nuclear free cannot be told without reference to Pat Hanly and his iconic works around the fear of and protest against nuclear weapons.

Pat Hanly’s paintings are about passion and protest, light, love and life and are joined in this exhibition by photographs from Gil Hanly, DVDS from Claudia Pond Eyley and Lisa Prager. Blast! is also accompanied by a publication by Trish Gibben especially designed for children and the Art Museum will be running schools education programs in association with Whangarei Museum.

A survey exhibition by Pat Hanly Classic Hanly curated by Scott Pothan was the inaugural exhibition at the official opening of the Whangarei Art Museum 14 years ago in June 1996. The Whangarei Art museum is privileged to welcome back the expressive works of such a well loved artist and activist.
