Ticket Information:

Rita Angus was a regular participant in the annual exhibitions of The Group, along with artists such as Leo Bensemann, Colin McCahon, Toss Woollaston, Doris Lusk and Olivia Spencer Bower. The Group began in 1927, almost as an art club, independent of the Canterbury Society of Arts, holding an exhibition in Christchurch virtually every year until 1977, when it disbanded.

This exhibition shows examples of The Group artists’ works from the 1930s onwards coinciding with the time Angus lived and worked in Christchurch.

Curated by Julie Catchpole.

This suite of exhibitions and public programmes has been sponsored by the Nelson Suter Art Society, and Savage and Savage Chartered Accountants, Nelson.
