Alfred Cameron returns to Timaru

Alfred Cameron survived the hell at Gallipoli, returned to New Zealand, married, and took up farming at Cricklewood in South Canterbury. So it's been great that these paintings have been on show at the Aigantighe Art Gallery in Timaru. This exhibition contrasts Archibald Baxter being forced to the frontline as a conscientious objector with Cameron's eagerness get there.

Here are a couple of installation shots.
