What’s on @charlotte

In addition to events and talks, the Charlotte Museum Trust holds regular exhibitions at Charlotte’s Gallery, located upstairs at our New Lynn museum. We welcome expressions of interest from lesbian artists wishing to show their work in 2017.

Current Exhibitions

Viv Jones’ Cartoon Exhibition

  • They were seen in Circle magazines through the seventies and eighties containing Lesbian and Gay themes.

Activist Tee-Shirt Display

  • To wear a Tee-Shirt with Gay or Lesbian slogons on it was a brave thing to do before New Zealand finally passed legistraion in 1993 to outlaw discrimionation on the grounds of sexual orientation. During the seventies feminists used emblazoned shirts to promote, abortion, women’s and Lesbian’s rights as well as women sport’s teams and lesbian confrences. Other Shirts are hummourous that give a good feeling about ones self. Come have a look!
