Guest Speaker John Maynard, Film Producer & Art Collector
John Maynard is well known as a film producer with an eye for talent, producing the debut feature films from directors Jane Campion (SWEETIE), Vincent Ward (VIGIL, THE NAVIGATOR), Rowan Woods (THE BOYS), Robert Connolly (THE BANK, THREE DOLLARS) and Richard Roxburgh (ROMULUS, MY FATHER).

Maynard has had three films In Competition in Cannes (an unrivalled Australian record) and with partner Bridget Ikin, he co-produced Jane Campion's AN ANGEL AT MY TABLE, in 1990 winner of the 'Silver Lion' in Venice. THE BOYS, John's first collaboration with business partner Robert Connolly, debuted In Competition at Berlin in1998.

He has been an active independent distributor in Australia and New Zealand for 25 years releasing his own films and those from Hibiscus Films and has a reputation for creating innovative marketing campaigns.

In addition, John Maynard was the inspirational inaugural director of the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, New Zealand and is a keen collector of contemporary New Zealand art.

Artist Philip Trusttum
Philip Trusttum (b.1940) graduated from the University of Canterbury, School of Art in 1964. He is regarded as one of New Zealand's most distinguished contemporary painters and is represented in all major public and private collections throughout New Zealand.

In the past, he has shown in Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin and Christchurch, as well as Edinburgh and New York.

There are many 'closet' New Zealand artists with a presence in the Australian art market and likewise, many contemporary Australian artists doing very well across the Tasman. This exhibition seeks to introduce Philip Trusttum and his art to a new generation of collectors and to provide clients with an opportunity to participate in the booming trans-Tasman art market.
