First Impressions

Wallace Gallery
13th )ct - 11th Dec 2011

The Wallace Arts Trust holds in its Collection a survey of works spanning the carreers of many proninent New Zealand artists. First Impressions is an exhibition designed to show visitors the earliest works purchased by James Wallace from a number of artists he has continued to collect. These works represent both the subjective tastes of a collector and the astute eye gained from years of participation in, and patronage of the visual art scene; they all have in common the fact that they made good 'first impressions'.
