Gwyn Hanssen Pigott Memorial GOMA

Yesterday there was a memorial for Gwyn Hanssen Pigott at GOMA which was most welcome as Gwyn spent a large part of her life in Queensland. The new gallery director Chris Saines welcomed her friends and family, her sisters attended.

A very gentle memorial and everyone had a chance to chat over afternoon tea on a very windy balcony at the Art Gallery. The gallery had purchased a work from her final exhibition held in the London West End gallery Erskine, Hall & Coe. She died shortly after the opening.
The newest acquisition, making ten works by Gywn that the gallery has.

  1. Gwyn's preferred photographer's name is Brian Hand - an artist in his own right.
