Pat Hanly - the painter and his protests.
A generation ago in 1987, New Zealand passed legislation to make the country nuclear free. We are celebrating this wonderful achievement with an exhibition featuring Pat Hanly’s anti-nuclear paintings and Gil Hanly’s documentary photographs.
Pat Hanly’s paintings are about passion and protest, light, love and life. He painted with many different styles and subjects but this collection of paintings and prints focuses on the work made in fear or protest about nuclear weapons. In the story of New Zealand’s struggle to be nuclear-free no artist is more important than Pat Hanly.
Also check out our 'Speaker on Deck' dates for a chance meet the people behind the inspiration of the exhibition and the Peace Movement.
