Richard Parker has been influencing ceramic art in New Zealand throughout his 30 year career, and now a touring exhibition celebrates that. This show of Parker’s instantly recognisable work, which is frequently embellished with dashes, dots and dribbles in a rich range of glazes will delight ceramics lovers and design enthusiasts alike.
The Paramount Award at the annual Wallace Art Awards is one of the country’s premier art prizes. For twenty years, this award has celebrated and supported contemporary New Zealand art, and the exhibition now shares the winning works with a wider audience. All the winning artworks from the first two decades of the awards - from Mark Braunias’ 1992 Roll Call to Akiko Diegel’s 2011 Cure – are included in this exciting mixed-media exhibition.
Exhibition developed and toured by the Wallace Arts Trust
