Nocturne – Selected Wanderings 2004-2019 is a survey of Sam Foley’s night works, spanning sixteen years. It features eighteen paintings from public, private and artist collections. Since his first foray into the leafy monochrome of Dunedin’s Town Belt he has kept coming back to the theme of ‘Night’. From the alleyways of his hometown Dunedin, to a snow-swept hill in Edinburgh, to the friendly corner bar in Berlin, Foley explores darkness in all its various landscapes. These works were exhibited at the Wallace Arts Trust Pah Homestead during the summer of 2019-2020.

Exhibition opening: Tuesday 10 December. All welcome.
