|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until September 20, 2018

The Sister & The Poet exhibition at the Suzanne Aubert Heritage Centre focuses on the lives and influence of two important people in New Zealand’s history, Suzanne Aubert and James K Baxter. ‘The Sister & the Poet: Jerusalem’ presents a body of printmaking works by MB Stoneman, reflecting personal philosophies based on research and residency at the old convent in Jerusalem/Hiruharama.

Taranaki artist MB Stoneman developed a body of twenty one works following a series of visits and retreats to the original site of the Home of Compassion, up the Whanganui river “The convent, St Joseph’s church, the Sister’s house and surrounding gardens are very well cared for. The whole place seems to evoke a feeling of being looked after – that’s how I felt there. Because of it’s isolation and quiet pace, it invites contemplation and reflection. I read a lot of books while I was there, drawing on the wealth of words written by Aubert and Baxter, their philosophies are all tied in with the energy at Hiruharama.  It is a unique and special place.” Stoneman says.

We welcome you to come and view this great exhibition. Open Mon-Sat 10am-3pm | Sun 12noon-3pm. Email: heritagecentre@compassion.org or Ph. 04 282 1953.
