Art of Two

Arts in Oxford 5th year Celebration Exhibition

31st January – 25th February 2015

Five years ago Arts in Oxford opened its doors to the public for the first time. As part of our 5th year celebrations we are proud to present “Art of Two”, an exhibition by two Canterbury painters with strong connections to Oxford and the North Canterbury region.

Philip Trusttum, one of New Zealand’s most recognised contemporary painters and Arts in Oxford Patron, presents a collection of new mixed media works together with recent works from the studio of Oxford artist and Arts in Oxford Founding Director Brent Firkin.

Philip Trusttum was born and bred in Oxford and his work is represented in all major public and private collections within New Zealand and internationally. Brent Firkin has worked as a practicing painter and potter for 35 years and has recently retired from full time art teaching to return to his studio, where he is now full time painting. Brent has works in a number of private collections.
