Currently adorning the ballroom at Alberton as part of the exhibition 'The Impossible Garden', are richly decorative artworks by Mt Eden artist Emma Bass - a celebration of colour and life-affirming natural abundance!

Inspired by 17th century Dutch and Flemish floral still lives and the joyousness of Matisse, they ‘explore beauty though a manipulated lens’. Bluring the boundaries between photography, painting and collage they beguile the viewer with their illusory, impossible perfection.

Join us for this Talk & Tea and all-round lovely afternoon with Emma on Saturday 1 August at 2pm! Emma will be joined by special guest - decorative arts curator, former director of Te Toi Uku: Crown Lynn Museum and ceramics aficionado, Finn McCahon Jones, who will chat about some of the vases in Emma’s collection, which are a major source of inspiration for her work in her signature 'floral portrait' photographs.

Tickets: $15. Includes tea & scones and house entry. Bookings recommended as places are limited. Email alberton@heritage.org.nz or phone 846 7367.
