23 June – 23 July

Almost 130 works on show from 79 artists, exhibiting the exciting breadth of style, genre and media that our contributing member artists are employing in their work. 

ABOUT OUR GUEST ARTISTS


Darcy Nicholas QSO

Darcy Nicholas has been actively involved in the contemporary Māori arts movement since the 1960s. He has exhibited throughout Aotearoa New Zealand, Australia, the USA and Canada, many European nations, and several African states. His works are in public and private collections around the world.

His vividly-coloured expressionist style combines landscape and portraiture to explore and represent Māori perspectives and also universal themes across the many differing cultures that he has encountered. He is also well-known as a sculptor, where the female figure is a recurring theme.

Darcy has been hugely influential in the development of Māori art. He was the visionary behind the creation of Pataka. He organised several major cultural exchanges between Native American and Māori artists and has curated major touring exhibitions to Australia and Africa. He was made a Companion of the Queens Service Order in 2010. His contributions were further acknowledged in 2013 with his receipt of “Te Tohu mo Te Arikinui Dame Te Atairangikaahu Te Waka Toi Exemplary Award” for his lifetime contributions to Māori Art.

Darcy’s works in this exhibition are Children of Tane, Mana Whenua and Whataitai: The Island.

Tracey Morgan

Tracey Morgan was initiated into Māori weaving by the Kāpiti Weavers at the age of 16 and mentored by Hereke Ethol Jenkins, who in turn was taught by Tracey’s own great grandmother, Ngawati Morehu. She completed a degree as a Master of Māori Visual Arts with First Class Honours. 

Tracey has been an educator and advocator for Māori weaving. She is the current Editor of the National Maori Weavers’ magazine, Deputy Chair of the Toi Māori Aotearoa Board of Trustees and national moderator for Ngā Mahi a Te Whare Pora for the New Zealand Qualifications Authority.

Tracey has been involved with Toi Māori Aotearoa as an artist, curator and project co-ordinator since the establishment of the organisation in 1996. She is curator and exhibitor for the Toi Māori Art Market and has an extensive background in public service in the Kāpiti region as Chair of Maungakotukutuku Ahu Whenua Trust, Deputy Chair for Kāpiti Coast District Council Iwi Town Centres and iwi representative for the Kāpiti Coast District Arts Panel, Mahara Gallery Development Group and Waikanae Library and Cultural Centre Development.

Tracey’s works in this exhibition are Papatuanuku and From Forest to Shore.
