Opening event Saturday September 29, from 5.00pm
The Diversion Gallery, Marlborough
Join Philippa and Mary Binney, to celebrate Don Binney’s rare drawings, Artist’s Proofs, and other treasures from the studio collection, dating from the 1960s to 2011. The release of these works for sale will underpin a definitive book on the late Don Binney, icon of New Zealand art, by noted arts writer Gregory O’Brien in association with Auckland University Press.
‘As well as being a conservationist and hiker, Binney was an ornithologist, a student of natural and human histories, a teacher and an autodidact, a traveller and a great believer in staying at home. The book will offer an account of a restless, unpredictable, searching personality—and of an art deeply embedded in notions of the local, regional and national.’ – Gregory O’Brien on Don Binney, September 2018.
Few enough of Don Binney’s works remained in his own studio collection, such was the following for his work throughout his career. It is a privilege to present this remarkable selection, celebrated appropriately by finely crafted wines from Forrest Estate.
