About Mahara Gallery, Waikanae


Mahara Gallery began in 1995, founded by Norma McCallum and Robin Rogerson, chair and member of Waikanae Business and Professional Women. Fay Bresolin and Robin Rogerson became co-directors along with many other volunteers, artists and arts supporters who wished to see a public gallery developed on the Kāpiti Coast. It was established as a Charitable Trust in 1996, and moved to its current location in what was Waikanae Public Library (built 1977) in Mahara Place.
