Virtual Exhibit - The Jacksons

James Alan Napier Brown
WWI soldier, formerly of
Brown Bros Butchers
Main St, Otautau
One of the things we like to do is dig a little deeper and find out more about things in our collection.

Two years ago, we'd been researching WWI soldiers and became aware that there were Otautau soldiers whose portraits had been painted by a Christchurch couple, Alexander and Honor Jackson. You can read the old post here.

As a result of that post, we received inquiries for more information about the artists. Even better, we were given more examples of their artwork. The pictures are so nice that we thought we'd put them all together in an 'exhibit space' of their own. If you click on this link, you can see them here.

In the meantime, we are still digging into who the artists were and making some progress. We plan to share what we find in a future post so stay tuned.

Note: We're open Sundays, 2pm-4pm and by request.
