EXHIBITIONS ON Sunday 01 January
Ayesha Green: Still life

These new works by Ayesha Green (Ngāti Kahungunu, Kāi Tahu) were produced during her recent residency at Parehuia-McCahon House. They mark a shift into still-life painting and the negotiation of the complex conventions of this historic genre. As with all of Green’s work, these new paintings are layered with references and are mindful of the formats and genres they utilise, prompting us to consider the history and politics of representation. Many are juxtaposed with painted tributes to important texts that present various frameworks for unpacking our national narratives.

10 December - 28 May  |  See event detail
Moniek Schrijer: Screensaver

In response to being artist-in-residence at Parehuia-McCahon House in 2021, jeweller Moniek Schrijer presents an exhibition influenced by the ecology of the McCahon House garden, local climate, lunar events, and the distinctive light at this famously forested historic residency. These works document shifts in atmospheric conditions, contrasting perspectives and details from the landscape, streetscape and built environment with zoomed-in close-ups of liquids, changing shadows and observations of the play of light as time passes.

10 December - 12 March  |  See event detail
Fiona Jack & Courtney Sina Meredith: Earth Posters

Earth posters is the first presentation of a collaboration between writer Courtney Sina Meredith and artist Fiona Jack. The result is a merging of text and clay that captures an exchange between friends, and a moment in time.

Cellular memories and planetary designs: Three works by Elizabeth Thomson

Titirangi-born Elizabeth Thomson (born 1955) has devoted much of her career as a sculptor/visual artist to exploring both the order and randomness she finds not only in the physical world but in the fabric of human life and thought. As a special encore for the recent exhibition, Cellular memory, three works are exhibited in Te Uru’s distinctive spiral staircase and highlight three very different approaches to art-making, each of them bringing together elements from the methodology of sculpture, painting, photography and applied arts. Thomson’s works take the forms, colours and textures of the world around us and translate them into a visual language which is, at once, mysterious yet strangely familiar.

Onewherowhero

Students from Kelston Intermediate explore connection to whenua and rangatiratanga through making with uku (clay), a medium with a long history of use in the Kelston area. In this collaborative exhibition, they present a collection of hand-coiled kaitiaki forms, and sculpted pūtangitangi (flute) instruments.  This project has been supported by leading ceramic artist Carla Ruka through the Ministry of Education’s Creatives in Schools programme.

Tia Ranginui: Gonville gothic

Sometimes described as Māori fairy folk, patupaiarehe were said to live in the mountains and forests, cleaving to darkness, and building their homes from swirling mists. They had pale skin and red or fair hair, and bewitched people, especially young women, luring them away. Redhead and albino Māori were sometimes said to be the result of interbreeding. Today, some speculate that patupaiarehe descended from early Europeans who arrived here before Polynesians.

In response to being artist-in-residence at Parehuia-McCahon House in 2021, jeweller Moniek Schrijer presents an exhibition influenced by the ecology of the McCahon House garden, local climate, lunar events, and the distinctive light at this famously forested historic residency. These works document shifts in atmospheric conditions, contrasting perspectives and details from the landscape, streetscape and built environment with zoomed-in close-ups of liquids, changing shadows and observations of the play of light as time passes.

Cellular memories and planetary designs: Three works by Elizabeth Thomson

Titirangi-born Elizabeth Thomson (born 1955) has devoted much of her career as a sculptor/visual artist to exploring both the order and randomness she finds not only in the physical world but in the fabric of human life and thought. As a special encore for the recent exhibition, Cellular memory, three works are exhibited in Te Uru’s distinctive spiral staircase and highlight three very different approaches to art-making, each of them bringing together elements from the methodology of sculpture, painting, photography and applied arts. Thomson’s works take the forms, colours and textures of the world around us and translate them into a visual language which is, at once, mysterious yet strangely familiar.

Tia Ranginui: Gonville gothic

Sometimes described as Māori fairy folk, patupaiarehe were said to live in the mountains and forests, cleaving to darkness, and building their homes from swirling mists. They had pale skin and red or fair hair, and bewitched people, especially young women, luring them away. Redhead and albino Māori were sometimes said to be the result of interbreeding. Today, some speculate that patupaiarehe descended from early Europeans who arrived here before Polynesians.

EXHIBITIONS ON Tuesday 10 January
Ayesha Green: Still life

These new works by Ayesha Green (Ngāti Kahungunu, Kāi Tahu) were produced during her recent residency at Parehuia-McCahon House. They mark a shift into still-life painting and the negotiation of the complex conventions of this historic genre. As with all of Green’s work, these new paintings are layered with references and are mindful of the formats and genres they utilise, prompting us to consider the history and politics of representation. Many are juxtaposed with painted tributes to important texts that present various frameworks for unpacking our national narratives.

Cellular memories and planetary designs: Three works by Elizabeth Thomson

Titirangi-born Elizabeth Thomson (born 1955) has devoted much of her career as a sculptor/visual artist to exploring both the order and randomness she finds not only in the physical world but in the fabric of human life and thought. As a special encore for the recent exhibition, Cellular memory, three works are exhibited in Te Uru’s distinctive spiral staircase and highlight three very different approaches to art-making, each of them bringing together elements from the methodology of sculpture, painting, photography and applied arts. Thomson’s works take the forms, colours and textures of the world around us and translate them into a visual language which is, at once, mysterious yet strangely familiar.

Tia Ranginui: Gonville gothic

Sometimes described as Māori fairy folk, patupaiarehe were said to live in the mountains and forests, cleaving to darkness, and building their homes from swirling mists. They had pale skin and red or fair hair, and bewitched people, especially young women, luring them away. Redhead and albino Māori were sometimes said to be the result of interbreeding. Today, some speculate that patupaiarehe descended from early Europeans who arrived here before Polynesians.

EXHIBITIONS ON Thursday 19 January
Ayesha Green: Still life

These new works by Ayesha Green (Ngāti Kahungunu, Kāi Tahu) were produced during her recent residency at Parehuia-McCahon House. They mark a shift into still-life painting and the negotiation of the complex conventions of this historic genre. As with all of Green’s work, these new paintings are layered with references and are mindful of the formats and genres they utilise, prompting us to consider the history and politics of representation. Many are juxtaposed with painted tributes to important texts that present various frameworks for unpacking our national narratives.

Moniek Schrijer: Screensaver

In response to being artist-in-residence at Parehuia-McCahon House in 2021, jeweller Moniek Schrijer presents an exhibition influenced by the ecology of the McCahon House garden, local climate, lunar events, and the distinctive light at this famously forested historic residency. These works document shifts in atmospheric conditions, contrasting perspectives and details from the landscape, streetscape and built environment with zoomed-in close-ups of liquids, changing shadows and observations of the play of light as time passes.

Thomson’s works take the forms, colours and textures of the world around us and translate them into a visual language which is, at once, mysterious yet strangely familiar.

Students from Kelston Intermediate explore connection to whenua and rangatiratanga through making with uku (clay), a medium with a long history of use in the Kelston area. In this collaborative exhibition, they present a collection of hand-coiled kaitiaki forms, and sculpted pūtangitangi (flute) instruments.  This project has been supported by leading ceramic artist Carla Ruka through the Ministry of Education’s Creatives in Schools programme.

Tia Ranginui: Gonville gothic

Sometimes described as Māori fairy folk, patupaiarehe were said to live in the mountains and forests, cleaving to darkness, and building their homes from swirling mists. They had pale skin and red or fair hair, and bewitched people, especially young women, luring them away. Redhead and albino Māori were sometimes said to be the result of interbreeding. Today, some speculate that patupaiarehe descended from early Europeans who arrived here before Polynesians.

EXHIBITIONS ON Saturday 28 January
Ayesha Green: Still life

These new works by Ayesha Green (Ngāti Kahungunu, Kāi Tahu) were produced during her recent residency at Parehuia-McCahon House. They mark a shift into still-life painting and the negotiation of the complex conventions of this historic genre. As with all of Green’s work, these new paintings are layered with references and are mindful of the formats and genres they utilise, prompting us to consider the history and politics of representation. Many are juxtaposed with painted tributes to important texts that present various frameworks for unpacking our national narratives.

Moniek Schrijer: Screensaver

In response to being artist-in-residence at Parehuia-McCahon House in 2021, jeweller Moniek Schrijer presents an exhibition influenced by the ecology of the McCahon House garden, local climate, lunar events, and the distinctive light at this famously forested historic residency. These works document shifts in atmospheric conditions, contrasting perspectives and details from the landscape, streetscape and built environment with zoomed-in close-ups of liquids, changing shadows and observations of the play of light as time passes.

Fiona Jack & Courtney Sina Meredith: Earth Posters

Earth posters is the first presentation of a collaboration between writer Courtney Sina Meredith and artist Fiona Jack. The result is a merging of text and clay that captures an exchange between friends, and a moment in time.
