Welcome to the New Zealand Portrait Gallery Blog

This is a space where you will find writing from artists, staff, curators, volunteers and friends of the New Zealand Portrait Gallery alongside images, videos and pictures from behind the scenes.

We will be updating the blog regularly and we can’t wait to share with you some of the amazing insights from the people we work with, so keep coming back to see what is new. First up some notes on Colin McCahon, Partridge Street, by Gordon H. Brown from Victoria University Art History student (and NZPG volunteer) Myrah Walters and Gillian Clark Kirkcaldie talks to Adam Portraiture Award 2016 finalist Charlotte Giblin.
