Sylvia Marsters’ new art exhibition Tiare Taina opened on Thursday night to high praise from the many people who turned out to be at the occasion.

 

Marsters says this body of work is her best yet and its focus is on the gardenia and its symbolism for Cook Islanders.

She believes gardenias represents the heart of Cook Islanders, no matter where they live.

“It is just something that draws you back,” she says, “it’s like the spirit of the people captured in a symbolic way.”
