Art is the highest form of hope
— Gerhard Richter

We aspire to the best regional art gallery in New Zealand, combining the high standards and level of professionalism expected from a big city gallery, with small town friendly service in a relaxed atmosphere.

Our mission is to make art more accessible in every sense: physically, metaphorically and financially, so more people can experience the joy of living with original art. We can assist with all aspects of collecting art, including art consulting, delivery, installation and financing.

Each month we transform the gallery with an exhibition of new work by a different artist. There is also an extensive variety of art for people to discover in our stockroom area on our custom built, slide out storage racks.

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 pieces we have teamed up with My Art, an art finance company offering interest free loans when spending over $1,000.

For us, it is all about authenticity and integrity; values that are reflected in the original artwork we select, our interactions with artists, clients, sponsors and our community.
