In collaboration with Alliance Francaise Auckland, we are hosting a special morning event to celebrate Louise Henderson’s French Heritage.
The event will start with a social breakfast held at the Gallery's Mojo Café for the french community and Alliance Francaise members to come together. This social event will include a welcoming from Alliance Francaise and a short introduction about the exhibition by Gallery curator, Julia Waite.
This will be followed by a tour of the Louise Henderson: From Life exhibition delivered in French by the daughter of Louise Henderson, Diane McKegg. Diane will share her personal stories and select her favourite, most memorable artworks in the exhibition accompanied by Julia Waite.
An English tour of the exhibition will also be available for audiences provided by Gallery volunteer guide Patricia Jean-Louis.
