As you know if you have been with us for a while, we have an intense (some might say creepy) interest in art dealer signs. Two years ago, almost to the day, we were wondering what would happen to the New Vision Gallery sign that Julian Dashper had saved from a skip. This was the gallery that showed Gordon Walters' koru paintings for the first time among many other firsts, but Julian couldn’t find an institutional home for it. We saw the sign at work in the weekend outside the exhibition of Julian’s work wisely curated by Ariane Craig-Smith for the Gus Fisher Gallery in Auckland. The sign served as a telling reminder of Julian’s love of New Zealand’s art history, and it was great to find it displayed on the steps of the Gus Fisher still doing its job.
We are away for a few weeks and will post when we can but only once a day unless it's twice.
