This work was produced by artist Wallace Trickett for a charity auction organised early this month by Otaki College students, who were raising funds for the Wellington Children’s Hospital. An oil on block canvas measuring 15 x 30 inches.

Unfortunately, a visit to the area may not be possible at present because of a slip on the Otaki Gorge Road at the Blue Bluff (KCDC photo below) 12 km from State Highway 1. Says the council, “The slip site continues to be monitored and design work for a new route behind the slip also continues.”
