An exhibition of paintings and drawings by the late Marlborough abstract artist J.S. Parker (1944 to 2017) themed around the poems he wrote over the five decade period from 1963 until his death.

JS Parker poems: 1963-2017- a book of Parker’s poems and line drawings, will be launched at the same time.

Renowned for his large-scale, colourful, grid format works referencing the landscapes of Canterbury and Marlborough, J.S. (John) Parker – whose artistic mentor was Ralph Hotere - drew much inspiration from the Wairau River and its environs.

The exhibition includes works sourced from the Millennium Public Art Gallery’s collection and family collections.
