Pātaka’s public galleries, Helen Smith Community Meeting Room and Performing Arts Studio will be temporarily closed from 22 January until 26 May 2018 for some essential building maintenance and upgrades to our community hire facility spaces.

The library, Kaizen Café, Pātaka’s gift shop the Toi Store, atrium space and Bottle Creek and Rangituhi Meeting Rooms will stay open and available to the public.

The Bottle Creek Community Gallery will be open for the first stage of the building maintenance work, but will close from March to late May.

During the closure period we will be presenting a series of public installation works by award-winning New Zealand artist, Shannon Novak. Click here for details.

Pātaka’s main galleries will reopen on 27 May with a whole new programme of exhibitions including a survey exhibition of work by Owen Mapp: Dragons & Taniwha – 50 years an artist carver; the new permanent social history exhibition, Whiti te Ra – The Ngāti Toa Story; and an exhibition of work by Australian artist Danie Mellor: From Right to Ritual.
