The Adam Portraiture Award 2016: Visit from Dr Te Huirangi Waikererpuru and whanau.

We were honoured by a visit from distinguished kaumatua Dr Te Huirangi Waikerepuru (Ngapuhi and Taranaki) last week. Dr Waikerepuru came to view the winning portrait 'Sisters' in the touring Adam Portraiture Award exhibition which closes Sunday 9 October. Two of the doctor's daughters, Inahaa Te Urutahi Waikerepuru and Ria Wihapi-Waikerepuru (middle and right) are subjects of the winning portrait by Andre Bronimann of Whanganui. Dr Waikerepuru was accompanied by his daughter Inahaa and members of his whanau.
