• Peter and Sara McIntyre

This collection of works by the eminent painter and war artist Peter McIntyre (1910 - 1995), and his daughter, photographer Sara McIntyre, provides an engaging portrait of the small central North Island village of Kākahi through a unique pairing of their works.

The McIntyre family holidayed at Kākahi from the 1960s. The township featured prominently in Peter McIntyre’s portfolio and he published a book on Kākahi in 1972. Working as a rural nurse in the King Country, Sara McIntyre has used her camera to explore the continuity of rural life in the area and published a book of her observations in mid-2020.

Father and daughter’s paintings and photographs provide an intergenerational snapshot of Kākahi which honours the resonance of its people, marae, village, rivers and landscape. A special thanks to the Lion Foundation for sponsoring this exhibition.
