Art is the highest form of hope
— Gerhard Richter

Muse is a contemporary art gallery located in the heart of Havelock North.

Owner Kaye Mc Garva, an artist herself, sources work from some of the best local talent as well as emerging and established artists from around New Zealand. The gallery space is ever changing with a dynamic exhibition programme showcasing new work, with more art to see from our slide out storage racks.

Object space

Muse is also a destination for unique home-wares and gifts with a carefully curated range of craft and design objects, including iconic Australian art and design company Dinosaur Designs. For more Information click here.

Muse Art Club (MAC)

We place significant importance on developing longstanding relationships with our clients. MAC has been set up to provide a social platform for clients interested in collecting, or learning more about contemporary art. We have information evenings as well as studio visits. For more Information click here.

Waimarama Artist Residency

Each year we aim to bring fresh creative talent to Hawkes Bay with an offer of an Artist Residency at stunning Waimarama beach. Auckland photographic artist Cathy Carter was the first to hold the position.  In 2018, Auckland Colour Field painter Richard Adams has been chosen. At the end of the residency an exhibition of the work completed by the artist is held in the gallery in conjunction with a special preview dinner.

We offer a variety of art services such as a mobile art gallery, enabling you to see art in your own home before you buy. We also offer a professional hanging service and have a variety of art finance options available. For more Information see here.

Muse is proud to be sponsored by Sacred Hill Wines
