Talisman Battery Painting
Posted by WACMA on 15/08/2013
This large oil painting by Wellington artist Bob Kerr was painted as part of a series depicting scenes from the 1912 Waihi Miners' Strike. The full exhibition was first shown in our Gallery in November 2012 during events in Waihi to commemorate 100 years since the strike.
WACMA were fortunate to have Hauraki District Council offer to help purchase it for the community. Currently it is hanging in the foyer of the Museum.
