Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna O Waiwhetu
The 6.3 magnitude quake that rocked Christchurch on February 22nd has prevented the commencement of this year’s SCAPE Biennale, which had already been postponed due to last year’s quake on September 4. In addition, both The Physics Room and Christchurch Art Gallery (which is again being used as Civil Defence headquarters) have closed their doors until further notice. You can check Over the Net for regular updates about members of the Christchurch Art Community.
Leg of Lamb, like so many others, extends deepest sympathy to the people of Christchurch.
