5 - 18 August 2019 - Pūmanawa
This exhibition of bug illustrations showcases chitin which is nature’s most common building block. Darwin’s phrase “endless forms most beautiful” could be its subtitle.
The show celebrates the beauty of the invertebrates that are made of that stuff through portraits of insects and their kin. These invertebrates give us our biodiversity.
Some works in this show are 100 years old and have never been exhibited before. They join modern pastels, paint and ink works from a dozen illustrators.
Dates: Monday 5 to Sunday 18 August 2019
Times: 10.00am to 5.00pm
Venue: Pūmanawa community gallery, Boys’ High building, The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora, 28 Worcester Boulevard, Christchurch
