Exhibitions

 

The Labours of Herakles

17th April - 15th August, 2015

Hercules – most famous of all the Greek heroes – steps directly out of a Greek vase and into the New World in this series of beautifully observed lithographs and etchings. New Zealand artist Marian Maguire imagines Herakles as nineteenth-century colonist, venturing into a landscape where his labours are both mundane and extraordinary.
