Gregor Kregar Sculpture Stolen from Gallery on Christmas Day
In the small hours of Christmas Day, a bronze sculpture was stolen from outside the Gallery. “Thinker” by renowned artist Gregor Kregar is a bronze 2m tall gnome that retails for $55,000. The work was only installed the week before Christmas.
The brazen thieves, in high visibility vests, spent a whole hour removing the work from its footing on the plinth situated on the corner of Wellesley and Kitchener Streets, before loading him into a vehicle parked outside the Gallery’s Kitchener St entrance. For twenty years Gow Langsford has exhibited works on this plinth for the public to see, this is the first time there has been an incident.
Please call the gallery on 09 303 4290 or email us email@example.com if you have any information on its whereabouts.
