With Snapshot: 1970s Paintings being exhibited in the main gallery, it seemed like an appropriate time to exhibit a selection of 1970s artworks from the museum’s fine arts collection. When Jolene Douglas, Exhibition Curator, began searching through the collection, it soon became apparent that there are a number of very fine works in the collection dating to this period. These works demonstrate the importance of the fine arts collection as an educational resource for local high schools and the wider community.

During the 1970s there was an active community of artists in Gisborne and a number of them are represented in Jolene’s selection, including Sandy Adsett, Jean Johnston, Norman Maclean, Alison Pickmere and Penny Ormerod.

While the museum’s art acquisition programme has always focused primarily on acquiring works by local artists, a small number of works by nationally renowned artists from other regions have been gifted or purchased. Included in this exhibition are works by Phillip Clairmont, John Drawbridge, Stanley Palmer, William Sutton, Kate Coolahan and Robin White.
