Season 28th Feb - 29th March

Just over a year ago, New Zealand lost one of it’s foremost and respected artists of bush and mountains, John Rundle, and our Gallery, is honored to be invited to host a large exhibition of his paintings. Over fifty of John’s masterpieces will be on show and for sale and although most were inspired by his beloved bush and mountains, there are also paintings of Wellington cityscapes, other landscapes, birds, cats and even one of his dog. The mediums John used are oil, gouache and watercolour, but the latter, he described as “the master’s medium - the hardest to perfect’’.

John’s love of tramping and mountaineering gave him the inspiration to initially photograph and then paint the magnificent scenery he encountered on his many tramping adventures. in 1977 John took the plunge and left his job as a photographer to become a full time artist. He painted away steadily since then from his studio underneath his home at the treetops of Korokoro. John also gave back to the community in many ways, as well as a respected volunteer in local art groups, he became a life member of the Hutt Valley Tramping club for his services. He was also a member of the New Zealand Alpine Club and has been a Mountain Safety Council instructor for over 40 years. He has also had his paintings published in several New Zealand art books.

This exhibition will be a highlight of this years Wellington Fine Art Exhibition Calendar.
