A Ngāpuhi artist is looking forward to greater international exposure through a new gallery in Whangarei.

Lisa Reihana is one of eight artists, academics and kaumatua on the Māori advisory panel for the Hundertwasser Art Centre, which is to be built at the Whangarei Town basin to plans drawn up by the late artist.

She says Friedensreich Hundertwasser, who had homes in his native Austria and near Kawakawa, specified a Māori gallery alongside the galleries showing his work and that of other New Zealand artists.

It's really exciting for me as a person of Ngapuhi descent, having an opportunity to support something I think will be very helpful for us and our opportunities to show our creativity and our work to the world, because the world will come and visit this gallery," Reihana says.

If the money can be raised from council and other sources the $13 million centre could be open by 2015.

Housing flip flop
WILLIE JACKSON: It wasn’t the best 7 days for John Key who flip flopped on housing at the start of the week and was escorted into the weekend with front page news that his lawyer has been mysteriously caught up in the Panama foreign trust debacle.
Here's my response to your opinion piece on Ture Whenua.
CLAUDETTE HAUITI: Why amend? It’s pretty simple really: there are over 27,000 blocks of Māori land under Te Ture Whenua Māori Act 1993 Act, that’s 1.4 million hectares or about five percent of the total land in Aotearoa. Owners, are shackled by antiquated policy preventing them from developing their lands hence the amendment to the act.
