The latest offering from Grantham House, Phil Dickson’s Wellington, was launched on 20th August 2014 by the Honourable Annette King at the CQ Hotel in Cuba Street.
It is an art book that takes the reader on an exciting journey around Wellington – beyond the tar-seal streets – where the reader can explore all the beauty of the surrounding hills and valleys, the streams and the natural environment.
Wellington’s topography and its harbour are assets to be treasured, where they can enjoy the wonderful backdrop of their hills and harbour from most residences and commercial locations. Opportunities for the adventurer are never far away and this book through Phil Dickson’s art takes you on this journey.
Phil Dickson is an elected artist member of the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts and an active member of Wellington Art Club and exhibits regularly at their exhibitions as well as at other art societies. Phil was recently a guest artist at a Watercolour New Zealand National Exhibition.
Phil Dickson, Wellingtonian, wanderer and artist, invites the reader on a voyage of self-discovery in and around the city and further afield in the nearby forest parks. His sketches and paintings, together with his historical knowledge, reflect his love of his home city.
