Gretchen Albrecht launch at Auckland Art Gallery


Join us at the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki on Tuesday, 9 April to launch Gretchen Albrecht: between gesture and geometry.

Gretchen Albrecht CNZM is one of New Zealand’s most influential painters. Over the course of her long career, her work has continued to surprise and delight, and her paintings feature in many important collections both in New Zealand and overseas. This comprehensive survey of her much-admired work reveals a painter steeped in art history, drawing freely from a range of sources to create vivid, intellectually persuasive and deeply affecting work, and determined to push her work in new directions. With a text by leading art writer Luke Smythe, plus a preface by art curator Mary Kisler, this magnificent book both interrogates Albrecht’s work and celebrates her accomplishments.

From 6pm, in the North Atrium. Books will be available for signing and for sale.
