Sacred Land Collection | Daphne Mason

Opening April 20, 2017 at 5pm
Studio One Toi Tu, Auckland

This show gives visitors a unique opportunity to view new works by established artist Daphne Mason, whose career spans over 50 years.

Daphne’s sense of responsibility as guardian or steward of her conservation block north of Auckland, in the face of rapidly encroaching land development in the area, inspired the title of this exhibition. In the 70’s, the late Ngati Maniapoto leader Dr Pei Te Hurinui Jones JP OBE, suggested the name “Whenuakura” (Sacred or Red Land) for the block. It is this land, and its birdlife threatened yet still protected, that inhabits these works.
