MetService Sponsors Constable Exhibition at Te Papa
The exhibition of Constable paintings that opens on Wednesday 5th July at Te Papa is being proudly sponsored by MetService and Jardine Lloyd Thompson Limited.
This exhibition, entitled Constable: Impressions of Land, Sea and Sky, provides New Zealanders with a rare opportunity to view works painted by the renowned English artist John Constable (1776-1837).
"As the title suggests", commented MetService Chief Executive, John Lumsden, "John Constable was fascinated with clouds, and it is this fascination that has attracted MetService to support this exhibition."
The exhibition is at Te Papa's TOWER gallery until 8th October. One of the highlights associated with the exhibition will be a talk on Thursday 20th July by MetService Meteorologist Erick Brenstrum on "The Plumpness of Cumulus" looking at Constable's works from a meteorological point of view. This is part of Te Papa's Art After Dark programme.
