The biannual Maori Art Market is a four-day event and this year is part of the REAL New Zealand Festival running alongside the Rugby World Cup. The art market provides an opportunity to showcase Maori culture through contemporary art to international visitors and enable them to talk to the artists and buy affordable, genuine Maori items to take home as mementos. The event will be launched this evening with a formal welcome at Pataka Museum for artists Bun- mei Okabe from Japan, Grahame Sydney, Beverly Rhodes, Maria Brockhill, Barry Te Whatu, Norm Heke, Regan Balzer and Tanu Aumua. An opening, for invited guests and international art buyers, is on tomorrow night. Doors open from 9.30am each day at Te Rauparaha Arena. Adults $10, children, kaumatua $5. Daily family passes $25.

Smiles for Maori art At night Rongo Tuhura is an arts tutor, and by day he works on contemporary Maori art creations, which are being talked about in collector circles. The tutorial job at Te Wana- nga O Aotearoa s Porirua cam- pus came a few months ago in a first-time programme where he teaches 21 students aged from 16 years, some of whom have never held a pencil. I work fulltime through the week during days at the Wana- nga, and I facilitate tutorials at night. I coach them through the techniques from illustrations through to painting, he says. Tuhura started drawing as a three-year-old and sold his first artwork for $2000 as a 14-year- old student at Lytton High School in his home town of Gis- borne. Today his tools are highly con- temporary. Tuhura uses a grinder on galvanised steel or aluminium to give it the brushed look and uses automotive translucent paints to get a 3-D look of realism with traditional Maori styles. It was a trip to Porirua for the 2009 Maori Art Market that gave the 40-year-old artist the boost that he needed. Of the 20 paintings he put up for display, 18 sold during and after the show and won high praise from Darcy Nicholas, the event s creative director and a leading Maori artist in his own right. Rongo is a serious artist, who is a professional who has made a long-term commitment to his chosen profession, says Mr Nicholas. Tuhura has three pieces for display at this year s market and hopes to crank out a few more before it opens at Te Rauparaha Arena on October 6.
