Under the leadership of new director Blair Jackson, Christchurch Art Gallery Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū has extended its focus to become a catalyst for ambitious creativity in the city, collaborating with artists to make new and adventurous works.
We have bold ambitions for our future collaborations and invite you to make them possible by investing in the creativity of New Zealand artists and our city.
Art Do 2018 is your opportunity to support the Gallery’s mission. Every dollar raised will go directly to the art – not a cent spared. Here’s how you can be part of it...

We’re delighted to announce that Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū has won a number of accolades at the 21st Museums Australasia Multimedia & Publication Design Awards. The prestigious annual awards celebrate excellence in the Australasian museum sector and were presented on Tuesday evening during a gala dinner in Melbourne.
Fifteen is our birthday party (guess how old we are…) and it’s less than two weeks away! It’s also the opening event for Tony de Lautour’s US V THEM, which is our big winter exhibition. We asked curator Peter Vangioni and visitor programmes coordinator Amy Marr what they’re most excited about in the incredible line-up for this grand birthday bash.
