Explore one of this country’s most precious, remote areas through the eyes of New Zealand artists.

In winter 2014 and summer 2015, two separate expeditions into southern Fiordland transported 26 New Zealand artists to the waters of Tamatea.

Their task: to connect people with this very special area and offer a window into a largely unseen environment.

Tamatea - Art and Conservation in Dusky Sound include over 50 original works by some of New Zealand’s most significant artists and emerging talent:

Ken Bradley, Nigel Brown, Brian Carmody, Ginney Deavoll, Cheree Te Orangaroa Downes, Martin Hill and Philippa Jones, Denise Hunter, Simon Kaan, Gerda Leenards, Euan Macleod, Cilla McQueen, Braydon Moloney, Jo Ogier, Craig Potton, John Z Robinson, Irene Mura Schroder, Bubba Thompson, Elizabeth Thomson, Janet de Wagt, John Walsh, Marilynn Webb, Robin White, Jane Zusters

Kindly contributed by the artists for the purpose of this exhibition, all artworks, unless otherwise purchased or indicated, are available for sale. Proceeds will be used to directly support Tamatea/Dusky Sound conservation and restoration projects.

Tamatea - Art and Conservation in Dusky Sound has been developed in partnership with Te Rūnanga o Ōraka Aparima and is proudly supported by the New Zealand National Parks and Conservation Foundation.
