About the Art Collection
The Fletcher Trust Collection’s paintings come from the whole sweep of New Zealand’s art history. The Trust’s purchasing policy supports the work of both emerging and well-established New Zealand artists. Fletcher Building’s offices at Penrose, Auckland are the home of the art collection. Specially curated exhibitions of paintings from the collection regularly tour New Zealand public art galleries.
Peter Shaw was appointed the first full-time Curator of the Collection in 1991. He is responsible for recommending purchases for the art collection to the Fletcher Trust, for curating regular exhibitions both within the Fletcher Building complex at Penrose and also special touring exhibitions so that the public of New Zealand can enjoy the collection.
