During childhood, Ian McKinnon’s family made yearly summer trips “from away” to Home – to Wallace Station.  ‘Home’ was where his parents and grandparents had been born and raised.  When McKinnon was 12 years old, his family returned to live in the maternal ancestral house – close to the crossing in Wallace Station – and although he went out from here to pursue an art career in his early twenties, this place never left him.   Recently, the North Shore landscape began to appear in his drawings & paintings – and this exhibition brings his artwork Home to the place that inspires him
