Tribute:  Portraits from the Collection of Avenal McKinnon is a touring exhibition from the New Zealand Portrait Gallery Te Pūkenga Whakaata and Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga that has been embraced national-wide by public galleries throughout Aotearoa.  

Among its many highlights is a portrait of the Portrait Gallery’s founder, Avenal McKinnon, (1949 – 2021), by Wayne Youle, (Ngā Puhi, Ngati Whakaeke, Ngāti Pākehā), a portrait that is very much about the attitude of its subject. Tribute:  Portraits from the Collection of Avenal McKinnon is at the Kate Sheppard House, 83 Clyde Road, Christchurch, 27 April – 25 June.
