    The special relationship between faith and art is explored in an exciting exhibition featuring paintings by New Zealand’s most well-known artist, Colin McCahon. On the Road (1976), a work over seven panels, is McCahon’s final “Stations of the Cross” and will feature along with other notable works by McCahon. Included in the exhibition are two paintings by Nigel Brown and works by selected contemporary artists inspired by faith or exploring aspects of faith in their work. The exhibition will be opened by Dr Peter Simpson, an author and authority on McCahon.
