Ka Ora (I Live), the last show at ORA Gallery New York. It is a group show featuring artists who have shown there previously (including myself) under the steady watch of Giarna TeKanawa.
I will have several photographs on show (available for purchase).
"KA ORA (I LIVE) is the last show for ORA Gallery New York and a celebration of the extraordinary life of a small Chelsea gallery. ORA has been a window into Aotearoa New Zealand and a marae (community hub) for many New Zealanders in New York.
Gallery creator Giarna TeKanawa took up an unexpected opportunity to open a gallery and generously welcomed a broad range of artists from Aotearoa, revealing a vibrant slice of our homeland’s creative talent to New York. What began as a three-month pop-up show continued to weave itself into a rich lineage of exhibits, often organically emerging through connections from one artist to the next. As ORA settled itself into 7th Ave, it also welcomed a growing whanau (extended family) of New Zealanders living in New York or visiting, a small patch of Aotearoa for all of us."
