NEW ZEALAND AND INTERNATIONAL STUDIO POTTERY
Including the Gary Winther Collection, the New Vision Gallery Collection, the Russell McVeagh Collection and additional pieces from the Len Castle Family Collection. A+O's October Catalogue constitutes a landmark event for collectors of studio pottery and applied art. Founded in 1965 by Dutch emigres Kees and Tina Hos, New Vision Gallery quickly became an important location for the emerging New Zealand art scene hosting legendary early exhibitions by Theo Schoon as well as Gordon Walters first solo exhibition in 1966. The pivotal role of New Vision Gallery was recognised in 2008 with the curated exhibition New Vision 1965-1976 staged at the Gus Fisher Gallery. Naturally the Hos collection reflects these important roots with artworks and prints by Kees Hos himself as well as Phillip Trusttum, Don Driver and Philip Clairmont along with important ceramics by Len Castle, Mirek Smisek and Barry Brickell.
