Helen Hitchings Gallery at Te Papa

27/10/2015

 

The Gallery of Helen Hitchings, which opened in 1949 ran for less than 2 years. It was New Zealand's first dealer gallery and championed Modernism. Te Papa has featured the gallery in it's Being Modern section, with photos taken in 1949 along with art and objects that were exhibited there. In the recent exhibition a photo shows Helen Hitchings with several works by various artists including an ink drawing and textile design by Avis.
