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).

A Garden of Earthly Delights

These photos show one end of the exhibition, there’s plenty more to see.




Looking directly into the bright pink room…


One of the posters from the back wall – Linaria vulgaris. The outside of the doors leading into the exhibition were decorated with details from this poster.

George R. Chance, 1916-2008, Aotearoa


“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.”
