This summer the Pah Homestead lays out a spread of delectable new treats from the Wallace Arts Trust Collection. Sample an assortment of works from a number of New Zealand artists including Andrew Barber, John Brown, Elliot Collins, Philip Clairmont and Sam Harrison.

The title A Summer Picnic is inspired by Oscar Enberg’s Community Chest for Rich Uncle Pennybags, featured in this exhibition. Central to this work is a large picnic basket, produced by a New Zealand craftsman to replicate baskets of this type from Switzerland. The allusion to the Swiss was vital in the context of the presentation of this work at the Liste Art Fair Basel – in a solo exhibition titled The Good Father and the Rich Uncle, organized by Auckland dealer gallery Hopkinson Mossman in June 2014.

The Wallace Arts Trust stages exhibitions of Recent Acquisitions on a regular basis throughout the year to acknowledge the support of the visual arts in New Zealand through the Trust’s on-going and active acquisition programme. A key activity of the Trust is the acquisition of works from both emerging artists and established practitioners for the Wallace Arts Trust Collection. The continuous collection of works provides for a ‘diary’ of contemporary New Zealand art practice with the Trust now holding over 7000 works in its Collection. The works in A Summer Picnic have been acquired by the Trust over the last 24 months.
