As we are heading further into Raumati, we would like to extend our warmest thanks for supporting ST PAUL St Gallery in 2019! Wishing you nutritious kai, a happy puku and good company.

Raumati is the current phase of the Maramataka, Māori lunar calendar, observed as the summer months between the Puawānanga blooming to the leaves falling from the trees. [1] Raumati is further divided, as below:

Hakihea (Nov - Dec) – Pōhutukawa is in bloom
Kohitātea (Dec - Jan) – Gathering of ripe fruits
Hui Tanguru (Jan - Feb) – Rūhī (summer star) rests upon the earth

The gallery will be closed 9 December 2019 – 19 February 2020. Office hours resume Wednesday 8 January 2020. We will re-open fully with the exhibition Speaking Surfaces, a collaboration between AUT Spatial Design and ST PAUL St Gallery, opening Thursday 20 February 2020, 5.30pm. Save the date!
