Of Te Aitanga-a-Hauiti and Irish descent, John Walsh was brought up in Ūawa Tolaga Bay.

Best known for his sublime, ethereal landscapes with dense narratives, A Portrait of Ūawa Tolaga Bay He Whakaahua o Ūawa is a major survey of Walsh's portrait paintings. The exhibition includes the 20-metre long A Portrait of Tolaga Bay in 1980, shown in public for the first time since the 1980s. John will be in the gallery restoring this work during the opening weeks of the show.
