The support for local art, having become a strong Hope family tradition, is reflected in the many works on display throughout our premises. 

Over the years Hope and Sons have built up an extensive art collection, our collection traces the changing styles of many local artists. 

Some of our artists are now nationally and internationally known. Notable artist John Toomer is an example, Hope and Sons purchased the first work he sold in the early 1970’s.  

We have over 100 pieces on display which forms more than simply an attractive backdrop for the complex.

In their time of loss clients often find comfort in the memories that a certain painting can evoke — of happier times at a place where they may have visited, stayed or lived. Or it may be that the style of a painting can simply make a difference in the way a person feels, easing the pain.

See the images below of some of the artworks on display in our Chapel.

Hope and Sons are contemporary yet respectful of tradition, being a five generation funeral family caring for the Dunedin, Mosgiel, and Otago communities.
