Taranaki artist John McLean is the subject of a movie and talk at Sarjeant On The Quay this weekend.

Last year Mr McLean released a book, The Farmer's Wife and the Farmer, a story illustrated by 22 paintings, which was published by Whanganui-based Tangerine Press.

The event at the Sarjeant will include a screening of a film showing Mr McLean's journey through the process of painting the mythological narrative of these surreal dreamworld paintings.

Mr McLean will also be present to discuss his work and sign copies of the book.

The event begins at 4.30pm on May 1 at Sarjeant On The Quay. Entry is by gold coin donation.
