Slice of life

The Eastern Southland Gallery celebrated its 40th anniversary on Sunday. For the opening exhibition of its anniversary year the gallery opened Gathered Voices: Highlights from the Fletcher Trust Collection. The Ensign reporter Ben Andrews went along to check out the 22-piece exhibition and asked two people their thoughts on it.

Tam Wilson (right) ... I think it’s a stunning collection of New Zealand art across many decades. Gore’s really lucky. This is what you would go to Te Papa and see.
