Early and Late Works

~ 11 January – 2 February 2020


~ Early and Late Works

~ One of the most colourful characters on the New Zealand art scene ~ Barry Lett (1940-2017) was a strong supporter of The Vivian ~ This delightful small show is a treasure box of visual gems

This unique Studio Gallery show is a gorgeous mix of Barry’s early and late works. They’re all portraits, mostly with his signature pen on linen – a few of which have never been shown before.

To make it even more special, we’ve managed to get our hands on two of the very last editions of Barry’s bronze ‘Sniffing Dogs’ - cast especially for this show.

There are times like now that the world feels like a disconnected place - and it’s works like these that let the light in. Offering us hope. Humanity. And joy.
