The Waterhouse painting exhibition at La Valla was a great success. Close to 100 people attended the opening night on Friday and by Saturday morning many paintings had been sold. That included the two made by three-year-old Connor Kilgour, Rae Waterhouse’s granddaughter.
On Saturday a steady stream of people, many with a personal connection to the Waterhouses, filed through the exhibition space to view works by the three generations of the Waterhouse clan.
“Such a variety of work,” said Cathie Smith and Sionid Horne.
“Rae’s work is so amazing.”
For Rae Waterhouse the exhibition of her work alongside that of her granddaughter, her late mother Nancy, and her late brother Phillip, was an emotional affair.
She hoping to do a similar exhibition in two years’ time, with help from other family members, many of whom paint.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
