Fiona Pardington: te whitinga o te pō

Help Us Bring Art To Life

In 2021 the Dowse Foundation helped celebrate the Dowse’s 50th by commissioning a new suite of works, te whitinga o te pō (the shining lady of the night), by renowned artist Fiona Pardington Ngāi Tahu, Kāti Māmoe and Ngāti Kahungunu and Clan Cameron of Erracht.

We want to help the Dowse grow its collection by commissioning more major works by artists from Aotearoa who are celebrated nationally and internationally.

We are looking for visionary patrons and donors to contribute to our Major Art Fund. If you are passionate about art, The Dowse and creating a legacy for future generations, then we would love to talk with you.

All donors contributing $5,000 or more will be recognised in perpetuity on the commission label/s.
