It is our very great privilege to welcome Barbara to our Studio for the November Studio talk. With a long history as a New Zealand artist on the international scene, we will hear about Barbara’s work in Italy and back home.

For many years, Barbara lived in Italy where her work was celebrated. An early success was the invitation to exhibit at the prestigious Quadriennale di Roma in 1977. The following year she began dividing her time between Wellington and Trieste, exhibiting abstract work in Italy and paintings about NZ’s colonial history in private and public galleries here. Since then she has continued to exhibit throughout New Zealand.

Barbara will talk about the collaborative relationship between Artists and Curators and also her experience maintaining an international career while sustaining ties with home.

Multi-disciplinary, Barbara is also a published illustrator and novelist. Do not miss the chance to join us for this rare opportunity to get an insight into the artist’s world.
