Our exhibitions are drawn primarily from the Hawke's Bay Museum's Trust collection. Permanent exhibits on the 1931 earthquake and the region’s stunning Taonga Māori are supported by changing exhibitions in seven additional gallery spaces.
From the onset of colonisation, European immigrants and their descendants have been bringing and maintaining their own culture in Aotearoa, including a characteristic art tradition.
These twelve artworks by five Pakeha painters illustrate the way in which people of European heritage in New Zealand have responded to the land of Te Matau a Maui / Hawke’s Bay over a period of 90 years.
Art, like anything conceived by people, is embedded within culture: hence these paintings reflect not only what the artists could see around them while living in Te Matau a Maui, but also how they saw: through the prism of particular values, beliefs, and social systems intrinsic to their Pakeha society.
All artworks are from the collection of Hawke’s Bay Museum Trust, Ruawharo Ta-u-rangi.
