The natural Chatham Islands environment provides inspiration for our local artists.
At the local galleries, craft and gift shops and private studios, visitors will find paintings, photography, ceramics, jewellery and momentos. Most are open at specific times or by appointment, so please check with your host, or with the artists themselves.
Kōpinga Marae contains carvings and works of art by local artists that showcase unique Moriori culture and identity. These include the main ‘Pou,’ Rangitokona, carved panels depicting reflections of Moriori tree engravings (rākau momori) and large-scale panels depicting elements of Moriori cultural revival and the natural world of Rēkohu.
