6:08 am on 9 April 2011

An exhibition by leading Maori artist Robert Jahnke and his colleagues and students is attracting large audiences at the new Mangere arts centre.

Centre director James Pinker says many of those turning up were students when Mr Jahnke taught at Mangere College, before leading the Te Putahi a Toi school of Maori studies at Massey University.

He told Waatea News that a catalogue of the show, which also includes work by Shane Cotton, Rachel Rakena, Jacob Davy and others will be launched at 2pm on Saturday.
