WHERE:Pah Homestead
WHEN:Sunday 1st December 4:15pm - 8:30pm
Garden, Grounds & Tree Tour + Guided Tour of Wallace Art Collection + Antipasti platters & drinks + 2 course meal = FUN!

This year’s Christmas party is at the Pah Homestead, an Italianate villa housing the James Wallace Art Trust's collection of New Zealand art, set in Monte Cecelia Park.

Join Penny Cliffin, our president, who has a long-standing research interest in Auckland’s trees, in exploring the extensive grounds which feature one of the finest collections of large and rare exotic trees in Auckland, including unusual Araucaria and Ficus species, Norfolk Island hibiscus and mature cedars.

This will be followed by antipasti platters and drinks (all drinks to be purchased from the cash bar). At 6.00pm we will be taken on a guided tour of the Wallace Art Collection, followed by a two-course dinner.

The major exhibition up when we visit is Jacqueline Fahey. Jacqueline is one of the first New Zealand artists to paint from a woman’s perspective. Initially her paintings revealed the isolation of woman in suburban homes.

Cost: $75 for members, $90 non-members. Cost does not include drinks. All drinks are to be purchased from the cash bar.
