Andrew Ross - 'Portrait of a House' exhibition. 2nd Dec. 2017 - 27th January 2018, Photospace Gallery, contemporary new Zealand photography, Wellington.
With a nod to the late Robin Morrison's first book, 'Images of a House', Wellington large-format photographer Andrew Ross explores the ambience and history of an older, private house in Masterton, a place with personal connections for him.
Ross's black and white photographs have been widely collected by institutions and private art collectors, and he has exhibited at least annually at Photospace Gallery since early 1999, where a large collection of his work is held.

Earthquake strengthening work on the facade of this building
This was supposed to be happening around now-ish but now looks like starting sometime in January - maybe. Who knows? Not me.
Anyway, when it happens, Room 1 of the gallery may be inaccessible for a few weeks. This could potentially affect the Andrew Ross exhibition, but probably not the Su Hendeles exhibition, which is in Room 3 at the back of the building.
My advice: come and see the Andrew Ross exhibition between 2nd December and 22nd December - this year. We may have to re-hang the exhibition in a smaller space next year. I don't know at this stage, but that's one option if Room 1 is closed during part of January. Keep an eye on the gallery website and Facebook page for updates.
