Late Night at the Adam Art Gallery

//From this Thursday 4 August the Adam Art Gallery will open late until 8pm on the first Thursday of every month!

To help celebrate our foray into the afterhours, Milk and Honey the new café adjacent to the gallery is offering all our evening visitors a glass of wine and a serving of hand-cut fries for only $10. This offer will be available only to visitors to the gallery after 5pm.

Currently on show at the Adam Art Gallery:
Behind Closed Doors: New Zealand Art from Private Collections in Wellington 4 June – 18 December 2011
This is a major exhibition that sets out to canvass selective ‘moments’ in a history of New Zealand art from 1946 to the present, drawn exclusively from private collections in Wellington.

The exhibition includes paintings by renowned artists Toss Woollaston and Colin McCahon, seldom-seen works by Michael Smither and Rita Angus, along with provocative multimedia art works by Peter Robinson and Ronnie van Hout.

Alongside Behind Closed Doors the Adam Art Gallery is staging a changing programme of projects titled: in camera: a project series around and about collecting. Located in one room of the Adam Art Gallery, the Kirk Gallery, this series illuminates other personal acts of collecting.
