Whatever the future holds, we’ve got your back.
Evelyn Page Village offers living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our apartments and townhouses are light and spacious, with clean lines and a clever open plan design layout that provides an easy flow throughout.
If down the track you need more support, we offer assisted-living apartments and a range of care options. That freedom and flexibility is empowering for residents and knowing care can be dialled up as needed means, quite simply, ‘no worries’. It's all part of what we like to call the Ryman Difference.

Each Ryman village is named in honour of a Kiwi or Aussie trailblazer: Anthony Wilding, Lady Diana Isaac, Evelyn Page. They pushed further and set the bar high for others to aspire to. In creating communities that challenge the expectations of ageing, Ryman villages are also setting the bar high. They’re demonstrating that a retirement lifestyle brimming with new experiences, connections and fulfilment is something we should aspire to. Our Kiwi and Aussie namesakes represent the measure of inspiration, while Ryman villages represent the measure of retirement living.
Christchurch born Evelyn Page’s talent and passion significantly influenced New Zealand’s modernist art movement.
Intending to follow her father’s footsteps into bookkeeping, Evelyn changed tact and shifted mid-schooling to the Canterbury College School of Art. Here she embraced her love for art and began a career that spanned seven decades focussing on landscapes, nudes, still life and portraits.
With a desire to challenge the New Zealand art world’s traditional approach, Page became a founding member of a modernist association of artists in 1927, later known as The Group. Members of The Group exhibited unrestrained, avant-garde art annually over 50 years to introduce a less rigid artistic approach to the New Zealand art world. One Auckland exhibition of Page’s female nudes created a controversy that raged in the newspapers for weeks!
Page was the first recipient of the Governor-General’s Art Award, a Fellow of the NZ Academy of Fine Arts, and was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire for her services to art in 1987.
Leaving behind seven decades worth of vibrant works, Page created innovative art that celebrated colour and portrayed the nuances of human character. She is recognized as “a painter with extraordinary zest and independence of spirit, whose lifetime response to human character and very individual use of rich colour communicates her vivid reverence and joyful celebration of life”.
Published in 1986, Janet Paul’s biography Evelyn Page: Seven Decades outlines the artist’s work in-depth.
