Let’s NOT celebrate Cook by Robyn Kahukiwa

The exhibitions run from 21 February to 12 April 2020.

PLEASE NOTE >> Mahara Gallery will be closed to the public 17 February and will reopen 5pm Thursday 20 February. We apologise for any inconvenience.

On Sunday 2 February from 4 pm to 5.30 pm we are hosting a gathering of original gallery artists, volunteers and supporters. We are inviting anyone interested in joining us to honour and celebrate their clear early vision of a district gallery for Kāpiti, and in making that vision into a reality in a redeveloped gallery on this site.
We are making a huge effort this year to enable the building project to get underway, and have consented plans designed by Athfield Architects to show you, and would love more friends and supporters to join us.
Entry is free to this special event hosted by the Friends of Mahara, so please tell your friends to come as well.

We also have two fabulous shows running for another two weeks until 16 February. Michelle Walton’s paper sculptures in In one piece have been described as ‘jaw-dropping’ by many visitors over the summer, and Robin Rogerson, Mary Zohrab and Bob Gibbs’ varied and fascinating artworks in Mahara marks 25 years have also attracted strong interest.
