We are pleased to announce the sale of the private collections of Peter Jarvis and Helene Phillips of Ferner Galleries to be held on 30 November. 

Founded by Peter Jarvis in 1985, Ferner Galleries was established in Auckland and expanded to Wellington and Christchurch. In 2008, Peter and Helene retired and closed their prime gallery in Parnell. They have bought and sold many works of art over the years, acquiring a substantial private collection of modern and contemporary New Zealand works, which hang in their home.
