From Nelson to Antartica

From Standing Room Only, 1:50 pm on 29 November 2015

A treasure trove of personal items belonging to early Antarctic explorers - from equipment and food, to clothing and even toothbrushes are to be committed to canvas by Nelson artist Sean Garwood. He will sketch and photograph the items that are preserved in the historic Scott and Shackleton huts. While he'd love to paint the objects in oil in situ, the cold makes that impossible.
