Today is the last day of the Philip Trusttum exhibition at the Pah Homestead. It is a very large exhibition of his work all owned by the Wallace Foundation. I ended up enjoying the work without being entranced by it.
The Pah Homestead itself is a very attractive setting. The café is good (but not spectacular) – its peaceful outlook over Monte Cecilia Park is lovely. There is a little shop with art books, some very nice jewellery and other fun objects. A good place to get an unusual gift.
The homestead was built in the late 1870’s and at the time was the largest home in
. The Catholic church purchased the property
and its extensive grounds in 1913. The
Auckland Council purchased it in 2002 and did a very good job of renovating the
homestead. The park is much larger than
I had imagined. Auckland
