Douglas MacDiarmid (1922-2020) is recognised by art historians as New Zealand’s longest-lived and longest-working painter. He is also considered to be one of the most technically and formally accomplished, imaginative, and intellectually and philosophically sophisticated artists to emerge from this country.

Join cousins Stuart MacDiarmid and biographer Anna MacDiarmid Cahill in the Art Gallery as they share their experiences of an unforgettable man.

Tea, coffee and cake will be available afterwards.
