Redecorating TaranakiComing Soon
Opening in the Lane Gallery on 18 July Redecorating Taranaki is a new exhibition that celebrates the values that are important to us.
Inspired by a series of workshops held at Puke Ariki and items from the collection, local jewellers Jennifer Laracy and and Sam Kelly have created awards that symbolise 10 of these values.
