Whakapapa is a group exhibition that explores the richness of artist genealogy through a range of unique expressions. Let us share with you our journeys, community and experiences that make us who we are. Be a part of our growing creative history.

After a sell out exhibition at Thistle Hall Gallery in Feb.2014 Wellington based artist Don Smith ( Ngati Kahungunu / Ngati Porou ) has created a new work from found / painted glass that will be part of the group exhibition - WHAKAPAPA - opening at ROAR Gallery, March 6,2014

Titled HONGI - breath of life .. the work recalls the Maori legend of the first earthly woman, Hineahuone. She was formed from clay by the creator god Tane, who then  breathed life into her nostrils.        Te Ara  Encyclopedia of New Zealand

While the title of the work suggests a strong and empowering sentiment .. by casting the work in glass the artist portrays the fragility that is also inherent in this formal greeting.
Under instructions from the artist the work will be up for sale for the price of : $1,840.62 .. in commemoration of the date of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.

Join us at ROAR! gallery near the corner of Vivian and Victoria Streets on the opening night 5.30 – 7pm Thursday 6th March 2014 to view the art on display,meet the artists and enjoy a glass of wine.
