Special Exhibition – Austen Deans Collection
We wish to acknowledge the support of the AA Deans Trust who kindly loaned works of art from the collection of the Late Austen Deans.
In addition, a selection of works from the trust collection was made available for sale, including works by Austen Deans.
Alister Austen Deans, always known as Austen, followed his two passions – painting and the great outdoors – throughout his life, with a career as professional artist that spanned more than 60 years.
Austen was twice the first place recipient (and once second) of the Kelleher Art Award.
Son Paul Deans has followed his father’s passion and is a Christchurch based sculptor and portrait artist.
