New Exhibitions   

Graeme Mudge QSM 1932 -2014

   20 February 2015  - 26 April 2015


                                                                  

Earlier in 2014 after the sudden death of artist Graeme Mudge many notable impressions archived away in the brain cells of the museum staff ballooned into reminiscing fervour. There were and are so many fond memories of Graeme that one year on his striding figure crossing Kelvin Park is still as fresh and vivid as today’s sunshine.

We at the Tairāwhiti Museum were privileged to be part of Graeme’s life; we celebrated milestones with him at many previews, his and others. In 2003, his 71st birthday festivities included a retrospective entitled ‘40 years on’, two birthday cakes and a crowded gallery of well wishers .His 80th year focussed on his life abroad from 1954 – 2002 with an exhibition entitled ‘Everywhere but Here’
