Matariki : Land Sea and Sky at the Lake House Arts Centre

Last night was the opening of the Matariki exhibition at the Lake House Arts Centre. It was a really special community event with old and young coming together to  celebrate the Maori New Year and the creation of some lovely artworks.  

Matariki is the name of the Pleiades star cluster and is seen as the beginning of the Maori New Year. Maori were practiced observers of the night sky, using the stars to navigate the oceans – the rise of Matariki signified a time of remembrance, fertility and celebration of the harvest.






























The exhibition will be on from July 2-July 27 2014
