"WWI in Watercolours" at 'Splash' - 18 April - 3 May 2015

This exhibition was held recently at St Paul's Cathedral in Thorndon, Wellington. The exhibition comprised three sections:

200 contemporary paintings by members of Watercolour New Zealand featuring a wide variety of topics from abstract to beautiful bays;

60 original paintings, prints and sketches by New Zealand's World War 1 artists - fascinating and stirring to view;

80 'Postcards to the Front' where members portray New Zealand in 1916 on a postcard to be sent to a loved one at the war front.

There was much in the exhibition for everyone to enjoy.
