David Lupton - Waitangi Treaty Grounds

Free for Friends of Waitangi and Day Pass holders

The Divine Remains, a fine art/botanical science photography exhibition, explores the fragile Victorian art of pressed flowers creating a bold and enchanting display. David Lupton has paired up with award-winning Central American poet, Leonel Alvarado, who has captioned the photographs with unique poems – an exhibition not to be missed.

To coincide with The Divine Remains exhibition our Education team, with the help of artist David Lupton, have conceived an exciting School Holiday Programme themed on pressed flower art. Children will learn the unique art of pressing flowers while creating a variety of crafts from bookmarks to magnets.
