This exhibition features a selection of drawings and watercolours by Jock Fraser (1899-1974), an artist and teacher who lived in Timaru. Fraser served in World War II and many of the drawings on display were made while he was a prisoner of war in Italy. His work provides a poignant and unique glimpse into the daily lives of the prisoners. The Aigantighe Art Gallery Collection contains over 100 works by Fraser.
