'Lovely Rita - A Painters Life' screening followed by Q&A

9 Herschell Street, Napier

A screening of Lovely Rita - A Painters Life – followed by Q&A with Dame Gaylene Preston and Jill Trevelyan

Renowned New Zealand painter Rita Angus lived and worked at a time when to be a full-time artist was unusual and hardly considered a serious occupation. Preston explores a colourful collection of friends and family who knew and loved Rita, while biographer Jill Trevelyan provides a fresh intelligence on the Rita Angus life story. A wealth of letters from Rita to Douglas Lilburn, re-enacted on screen by Loren Taylor, form a moving personal commentary.
