Adam Portrait Awards

Winston by Barry Ross Smith

We found some time on Sunday to visit the Lopdell Gallery in Titirangi. Currently showing are the entries for the 2007 Adam Portrait Awards which were all impressive. Our only disapointment was that the theme was "New Zealanders" so we were expecting more paintings like Barry Ross Smith's painting (above). A lot were self portraits.

We also were thrilled to stumble upon David Kennedy's show, The Bronze Goat, in the adjacent space. WOW! We LOVED his work; quirky, smart and pithy humour and so much fun to look at!

Both shows run through the 8th of June.
