art HUB

Oh hello! We're so glad you're here. We get you, so as well as providing a space to exhibit your works in the gallery or our boutique shop, we'll also provide a creative, fresh and inviting vibe for you in our community, including an amazing hub of resources so that we can all inspire, promote and create together. 

 

resources

So you've mastered your craft. Now what?!

One of the hardest things about being an artist is figuring out how and then learning the skills needed, to get your work out into the world and seen by the right people. 

We've collated a bunch of tips, tricks and resources - how to's, go to's and extra's for the emerging artist.

tamariki

Our tamariki, our children, our youth -they're the youngest, most impressionable emerging artists and a huge part of our community.

Child and youth led exhibitions, art and craft activities are a regular feature in the gallery. 

Explore our dedicated kids and Whanau area.

exhibit with us

Enter the building and take 1930's vintage lift to the first floor or venture up the elegant spiral staircase to our gallery.

The Upstairs Gallery is beautifully presented with a large glass wall entry and spectacular views out to the Manukau Harbour.

With a blank canvas for you to work with we accept proposals from solo artists or groups and actively promote your show with mini press releases, social media posts across multiple platforms and an email list of engaged followers. 

We also offer to add artists details to our online directory and give automatic gallery membership to all exhibitors. 

Show space is available for three weeks with an opening celebration that is usually held on a Friday after an available set-up period of up to 3 1/2 days.

The current visitor demographic is largely tourists, local community and gallery members. We're here 7 days from 10am - 4pm and exhibitors are asked to be available in the gallery to have a presence alongside their work for at least one half day shift, while their show is on.

We book out well in advance so get in touch quick with your ideas!

our boutique shop

Our gallery includes a quaint boutique space where our Emerging Artists and Gallery Members can display and sell their art work.

By selling in our shop space you will have a physical presence in the community and we will also help with merchandising, exposure and taking sales. Your work is promoted to our mailing list and social media, including Gallery Members who are encouraged to purchase through the shop with their VIP discounts. 

We do take a small commission to help cover our costs. 

Come in and speak to us or give us a call to talk about your latest works.
