Want to send a souvenir of the Parihaka exhibition to a friend overseas? Or find out more about the artists in the show? Then check out City Gallery Wellington's new Parihaka website: www.parihaka.city-gallery.org.nz

An innovative feature of the site is a series of vivid digital 'postcards'. Visitors to the site have a choice of eight images of works in the exhibition, including exquisite taniko weaving, paintings and historic watercolours, which can be sent to friends and colleagues.

The website, developed by Saatchi & Saatchi Wellington, also features an exhibition overview, background on all the featured artists, and details of the education programme and public events. Interspersed throughout are extracts of poems that have been specially commissioned to mark this exhibition, by leading New Zealand poets.

Publications on sale at the Gallery during Parihaka can be ordered on the site, and links to related websites are currently being developed. The new website is also accessible through the Gallery's main site: www.city-gallery.org.nz
