In early November we held an intimate garden event in Martinborough with the support of Chris and Kathy Parkin, who recently gifted the Foundation a significant piece of art - ‘That Vase’ by Dame Robin White.
A cocktail and canape event was held in London on Friday 15th October, the first in-person event for the UK Te Papa Foundation for two years. Generously hosted at the home of Craig Fenton and Meredith Townsley-Fenton, we were joined by 30 guests who enjoyed delicious canapés made by food blogger Meredith and a mixologist providing freshly-made cocktails.
That Vase, 2019 is the most recent collaboration of Dame Robin White and Fijian artist Tamari Cabeikanacea who have been creating collaborative works since 2017.
The work was recently purchased for the collection through the generous support of Chris and Kathy Parkin.
Partridge Jewellers have come on board as our named partner for our annual major event. Here we talk to Managing Director, Grant Partridge, about the legacy of this iconic brand and the importance of these partnerships.
