Windows of the Heart
Saturday 28 January - Monday 27 March
An exhibition of quilts by contemporary takatāpui fabric artist Maungarongo Te Kawa.
New art by Maungarongo Te Kawa, which celebrates the people and fun, joy, and colour of Te Ao Māori. Te Kawa's unique quilting style explores mātauranga Māori, his whakapapa and atua wāhine (goddesses) through bold colour and a tactile application of materials. Breaking the rules of traditional quilt construction, all types of fabric are masterfully stitched together to illustrate scenes from his imagination, his history and the stories of the people innfluential to his life.
