Lewis Tamihana Gardiner (Te Arawa, Ngāti Awa, Whanau a Apanui, Ngāi Tahu) is a leading pounamu artist who is attracted to working with jade for its solidity, beauty and ancestral connection.

He is known for his unique design aesthetic, use of inlay and incorporating several varieties of jade in a single work to create depth and variety.

Hā: Lewis Tamihana Gardiner is one of three exhibitions, and an art education programme, that forms the Tauranga Art Gallery's 2019 Matariki celebrations for Maori New Year.

The three exhibitions span the entire upper floor of the Gallery and include BLOOD WATER EARTH and Mātiro: A survey of photography by Kapua Joy Bennett.
