This exhibition is closed.

Located in the heart of the Southern Alps, the wild, untouched natural splendour of the Otira Gorge has long been a source of inspiration for artists. This exhibition brings together for the first time a comprehensive selection of paintings and drawings representing Petrus van der Velden's intensely personal vision of Otira – some of the most powerful works to have been created in New Zealand. The exhibition also offers a unique opportunity to view a selection of works that respond to Otira and Van der Velden by artists as diverse as John Gibb, Alfred Walsh, Colin McCahon and Ann Shelton.
