Golden – Celebrating 50 Years of the Friends of the Gallery Founded in December 1954 the Friends of the Auckland Art Gallery have supported and encouraged the acquisition of works of art for the collection from their inception. John Bratby’s Window was their first gift in 1958 and since then the Friends have generously presented 65 works to the Gallery. The gifts range from oil paintings to watercolours, sculptures to large-scale installations. Golden gathers together highlights of these gifts which includes many icons of New Zealand art such as works by Colin McCahon’s, Frances Hodgkins, and Pat Hanly, to name just a few. The centrepiece of the exhibition is the Friends’ fiftieth anniversary gift to the Gallery, Rita Angus’ renowned masterpiece AD 1968, which will be revealed to the public for the first time when Golden opens on 26 June.
