Opening at the Dowse Art Museum this month on 15 December 2012, is an exhibition titled Saskia Leek: Desk Collection.  The exhibition provides the first opportunity for audiences to see a broad range of Leek’s work and appreciate Leek as an artist whose works may be physically modest in scale, but whose artistic reach is considerable.  Seven of the sixty painting in this show are from Te Papa’s collection.  The exhibition is on until 14 April 2014 so you have plenty of time to visit and look out for our paintings.
