Art is the highest form of hope
— Gerhard Richter

We aspire to the best regional art gallery in New Zealand, combining big city standards with small town friendly service in a relaxed atmosphere. We can assist with all aspects of collecting art, including art consulting, delivery, installation and financing. Our mission is to make art accessible so more people experience the joy of living with original art.

The artists we represent are carefully chosen from the best emerging and established artists from around the country. Each month we transform the gallery with an exhibition of new work in an effort to inspire our community. At our openings the artist is present to chat with everybody about their work. All are welcome to come along to our openings and we actively encourage people to bring a friend. We provide drinks and nibbles kindly sponsored by our wonderful friends at Sacred Hill wines and Giant Breweries.

It is not just about exhibitions, we have an extensive variety of art for people to discover in our stockroom on our custom built, slide out storage racks and we can source more work for clients from our online catalogues. At the front of the gallery we have a great range of affordable woodblock prints, hand crafted ceramics and unique gift ideas. To enable the purchase of bigger budget items we have teamed up with My Art, a finance company offering interest free loans when buying art over $1,000.
