Bright and Colourful

Opening the doors into “A Garden of Earthly Delights” was a bright and colourful experience. It’s an exciting display space to enter and a joy to explore. Here’s an introduction to the exhibition (which ends on 11 August 2019).

“This particular bird was a local that used to fly between Flagstaff and Mount Allen. George Chance made a number of very large prints like this one using his own enlarger, a Durst 600. A second copy of this photograph was hung in the Hall of Birds at the Otago Museum when John Darby was a curator there.”
