Opening event Sunday June 17, from 2pm
Masterworks Gallery, Auckland
In celebration of Matāriki (Maori New Year) several of our Maori artists were asked to invite another, with the idea that in remembering the past we acknowledge the importance of the future in the creative continuum.
Whitu (seven) is inspired by the seven stars (whetu) of Matāriki whose visibility in the sky mark the start of the New Year and will showcase artists from the broader craft/object field, including Mike Crawford, Stevei Houkamau, Roger Kelly, Te Rongo Kirkwood, Neke Moa, Aaron Scythe, Terence Turner and Keri-mei Zagrobelna.
Join Masterworks Gallery at the opening Sunday June 17 from 2-4pm. All welcome.
The seven stars of Matāriki: Tupu-ā-nuku, Tupu-ā-rangi, Waitī, Matāriki, Waitā, Waipuna-ā-rangi and Ururangi.
