The very popular Adam Portraiture Awards exhibition, sponsored by the Adam Foundation and presented by the Portrait Gallery of New Zealand in Wellington, is a wonderfully colourful celebration of New Zealand culture.
The judge for the 2010 award was director of the National Portrait Gallery of Australia, Andrew Sayers who had the difficult task of selecting winners from a record number of 311 entries.
Come and see a selection of these top portrait paintings from around the country. Laugh, smile or grimace - it's hard not to be drawn into the mystery of another face and the story that lies behind it. Who do we think we are? Come and tell us what your pick is from this engaging mixture of people and paintings.
