Within the Hours of Darkness – Photographers celebrating Matariki


Our winter evening sky captured through the eyes of six photographers who favour the Wairarapa, which is on the verge of becoming a Dark Sky Reserve.  Within the Hours of Darkness celebrates darkness, the depths of winter, the pristine night sky of our region, and the shortest day marked by the rising of the star cluster Matariki.

Artists include Glen Butler, Sharisse Eberlein, Mark Gee, Rebecca Kempton, Pete Monk and John Whitby.

Opening: Friday 29 May, 5.30pm
