Pātaka’s Main Gallery will be CLOSED on 4 September 2019 for a scheduled event, but will reopen the 5 September.

Greenstone Pictures will be filming an interview with Greg Semu about his ‘Arrival’ artwork, currently on exhibition at Pātaka, for the next ARTEFACT series, to be screened on Māori TV next year. Taku Parai, kaumatua of Ngāti Toa Rangatira, will also be interviewed for ARTIFACT alongside Kupe’s anchor stone. 

Exhibitions in the Bottle Creek Community Gallery (Pātaka Friends Art Awards 2019) and Toi Gallery (Cathy Tuato’o Ross: Don’t say it with flowers), will not be affected by the filming in the Main Gallery, and will be open to the public.

We apologise for any inconvenience.
