Village Arts Gallery
23 June to 28th July
The exhibition ‘Wawata’, by Pā Te Aroha weavers, pays homage to the last remaining ancient Maori sail in the world, Te Rā, thought to have been taken to London by Captain James Cook in the late 1700s.
Inspired by research and documented details of the sail gathered by Mandy Sunlight, Raouati Ewens, and Ruth Port, Wawata gives you an opportunity to experience the making of the sail through different tauira (models and methods).
Looking forward to being a part of this show at Village Arts Gallery...along with the other stunning artists from Pa Te Aroha. Images include works by Raouati Ewens, Ruth Port, Maureen Lander, Toi to Maihi Rito and Suzanne Holmes
