Join author Jill Trevelyan for an inside view of the life and times of Wellington art dealer Peter McLeavey – the subject of her latest book, published by Te Papa Press.
Over the past half-century, McLeavey has known, exhibited, befriended, fought with and championed a who’s who of New Zealand artists – including Colin McCahon, Toss Woollaston, and many more.
In this talk, Jill pays particular attention to McLeavey’s dealings with McCahon and the NationalArtGallery during the 1970s and 1980s.
Come along and get your copy of Peter McLeavey: The life and times of a New Zealand art dealer (Te Papa Press, 2013) for a special on-the-day price. Jill is also available for book signings.
