Cynthia and Chris McKenzie were among the two thousand New Zealanders chosen in the ballot to attend the 100-year commemoration services on 25 April 2015 at Gallipoli, alongside eight thousand Australians. They found the experience very intense and emotional and it has had a lasting impact. Cynthia and Chris wanted to share their response to this historic occasion.

As Cynthia’s medium is pastel she has created works featuring the well-known symbol of Anzac, the red poppy. The poppy is of course a symbol of remembrance for WW1 and echoes the colour of the blood of the soldiers who died. As a photographer Chris was inspired to record the landscape, statues and trenches. Gallipoli Remembered is a very personal response to a deeply felt experience.

Opening Saturday 9 April,
2pm to 3.30pm.

Saturday 9 April to Wednesday 27 April
Small Dog Gallery
