Auckland Art Gallery presents 'Art After Hours' - an evening of art, food and entertainment in celebration of the gallery's new major exhibition:'Frances Hodgkins: European Journeys'.
This exciting late night event is an extra-special opportunity to explore all the gallery's exhibitions on display after hours.
Frances Hodgkins: European Journeys is the culmination of a significant international project to bring together artworks from New Zealand and around the globe to explore the artist's place in 20th-century art.
The exhibition traces Frances Hodgkins' creative and peripatetic life through France, Morocco and Spain to her final days in England, examining the influence of location on her development as a modernist painter and the notion of travel and journeying as a source of artistic inspiration.
The exhibition includes more than 150 artworks produced between 1901 and 1946: from early watercolour travel sketches of the French Riviera, Morocco and Venice, through to her first contact with modernism in Paris, and oil painting from her later life in Britain.
As Auckland's iconic gallery shines bright into the night, be sure to sample a variety of bespoke culinary options from the Gallery's forecourt and atrium bar.
