The Yallop & Smith Memorial Exhibition 2020

31 October 2020 12:00pm

An open invitation to exhibit.
The Yallop & Smith Memorial Exhibition is based on the enduring concept of friendship, community
and inclusion. A chance to remember and celebrate the lives of two good friends Ray Yallop (b.1934,
d.2010) and Des Smith (b.1920 d.2009). The Exhibition will be a salon installation in the style of their residence that was in Grant Street, Dunedin. Inside their house artworks of all kinds would vanish into a tapestry of colour and an endless sea of style, medium and form. Historical oil paintings would sit alongside bright coloured sketches, framed-photographs and quirky sculptures either given
by the artists, purchased from local galleries or just picked up from local fairs. Their collection represented a community of artists that would meet at ‘Des and Ray’s Place’ for unveilings of new works, birthday celebrations and even a wedding. It was a place that felt like home, where all were always welcome, and accepted for who they were.
Please join the exhibition.
