"The Open Cut" Painting

Posted by WACMA on 03/09/2013

This oil painting "The Open Cut" by Wellington artist Bob Kerr, is an artistic representation of how the top of Martha hill looked when gold mining operations were carried on in the early 1900's. It is another in the series that was done for the commemorative exhibition of the 1912 Waihi Miners' Strike.

When the exhibition "Gold Strike" was first shown in the Lee-Johnson Gallery during November 2012, an anonymous donor purchased the painting, so that it could eventually be hung in the new Library building, which is currently being built in Rosemont Road.
