Hāpai is an ongoing series that showcases artists living in Taranaki.
Meaning to ‘uplift’, ‘elevate’ or ‘support’, Hāpai embodies Puke Ariki’s vision of building strong relationships with community groups in our region.

Watch this space change every four months, as Taranaki artists display their latest creations.

Artists On Show (22 July to 22 November 2019)

The July series of Hāpai is full of imagination, colour and movement. We are pleased to showcase artworks by David Le Fleming, Maryanne van Roij, Ché Rogers, Tony Rumball, Angela Gnyp and Tony Waterson.

Come in to Puke Ariki library and check it out!
