KĀINGA : HOME - 26 July - 19 August 2023


A new visual arts exhibition at Lysaght Watt Gallery in Hāwera will showcase the diversity of artists in South Taranaki, featuring artworks that reflect ideas and concepts of home.

Curated by South Taranaki District Council Arts Co-ordinator Michaela Stoneman, Kainga : Home will feature works in a wide variety of mediums by 45 artists from Waverley to Pūniho, and everywhere in-between.


“We have a wealth of amazing artists in South Taranaki, each with a unique voice and approach, demonstrating remarkable skill and insight. This show will host a mix of established and emerging artists from our arts community and offers a platform for connection, future collaborations and celebration of our collective creativity’ Stoneman says. “I asked artists ‘What does ‘home’ mean to you? Artists could explore concepts of home in relation to any personal interpretation – eg. literal homes or shelter, local environment and spaces, history and storytelling. Aspects of culture, family, whakapapa, identity and beliefs reflect who we are and what is important to us. ”

Submitted works include painting, printmaking, collage, ceramics, sculpture, carving, raranga, jewellery, textiles, photography, assemblage and weaving. The featured artists live throughout the South Taranaki district, including Ōeo, Pūniho, Wārea, Ōhawē, Pātea, Ōpunakē, Waverley, Hāwera, Eltham, Pungarehu and Manaia.

Artists featured in the exhibition include: Ashlee Robinson, Ashleigh Chambers, Barbara Clegg, Beck White, Bonita Bigham, Bonnie McIntee, Carl Fairweather, Caryl Murray, Cath Sheard, Chauncey Flay, Chris Fuller, Claire Jensen, Dale Copeland, Dimmie Danielewski, Elisabeth Harrison, Erryn Willcox, Eva Chen, Holly Smith, Jennifer Laracy, Jonny de Painter, Karen Dey, Jenni Corbett, Libby Hogg, Lisa Walsh, Liz Sinclair, Maree Liddington, Marianne Muggeridge, Mark Bellringer, Paul Hutchinson, Rachelle Hopkinson, Robert Tauira, Roger Morris, Roseanne Oaks, Ruby Fitzmaurice, Tabatha Forbes, Wendy-May Thompson, Viv Davy.
