A recent story in the Otago Daily Times about a historic Dunedin home that emerged after decades hidden from the public in a state of disrepair has also uncovered the history of a remarkable family. David Loughrey tells the grand but tragic story of the Patrick family. Debutante presentations to his Excellency Lieutenant-general Sir Charles Willoughby Moke Norrie, a 1954 reception at the Dunedin Town Hall for the Queen and another for the Earl and Countess Mountbatten of Burma — such was the social life of James and Alma Patrick. The couple were early owners of the Mandeno and Fraser-designed home at 21 Tolcarne Ave, Maori Hill, which recently emerged after years of being overgrown and poorly maintained. It was bought earlier this year by Melanie Kerr and family, and has attracted plenty of attention and community goodwill.

A Ralph Hotere original artwork has been withdrawn from today’s Fortune Theatre clearance auction in mysterious circumstances. Fortune board of trustees chairwoman Haley van Leeuwen refused to be drawn on why the work was no longer up for auction. The Fortune Theatre Trust announced the theatre’s immediate closure in early May, saying it was no longer financially viable. Last week it announced it planned to sell the theatre’s assets. Haywards Auction House will hold an auction at the theatre today starting at 10am. The artwork was drawn by Hotere for the premiere of the John Broughton play 1981, which explored the 1981 Springbok rugby tour and protests from the perspective of a Maori family. Art+Object director Ben Plumbly, who had sold numerous Hotere works, said the drawing’s withdrawal from sale could be due to questions over who owns it. "More often than not it’s based around questions of title and ownership." John Broughton, who wrote 1981, is a … [Read more...] about Original Hotere drawing: going, going, gone?
