Titled 'New Zealand Army Art - images of courage, commitment, comradeship and integrity', the exhibition will feature Captain Gauldie's works from his Unknown Warrior through to more recent works including his 'Recruit' series and 'Day in the Life of a Soldier' series which he has painted since his official appointment as Army's Artist in April 2005.

The Rt Hon Helen Clark in her role as Minister of Arts, Culture and Heritage will open the exhibition. The exhibition will also feature selected works of Major Peter McIntyre and Major Ion Brown, both previous Army artists.

An NZLAV open for viewing, as well as Army Chefs providing freshly cooked ANZAC biscuits will be beside the gallery on Thursday afternoon up until the launch at 5p.m.
