Gallipoli: Ripping Yarns from the Peninsula
During tomes of war and in this case, World War One, there are so many examples of bravery, unselfishness, and sacrificing one’s life for a perceived noble cause. It is extremely difficult to narrow those stories to just a few but for this exhinbition that is what we have had to do – twenty stories; ordinary people (and a dog) doing extraordinary things.
This exhibition will open in the Hassett Gallery in April 2015.
The costumes of an era and the personal experiences of New Zealand and Australian women during the First World War.
