Pick up a paintbrush and make your mark on the Gallery walls.
This October we want everyone in Ōtautahi Christchurch to help us create a new exhibition! Wall to Wall is a colossal public paint-out of one of our downstairs gallery spaces. This your chance to make your mark on the Gallery walls, and to join us in creating a massive piece of truly public art. Pick up a paintbrush and create your own masterpiece, or work with friends and family to make a bigger splash. We’ll provide all the materials, you just need to bring yourself and your artistic flair. This event is open to all ages—doodlers and dab hands alike.
Wall to Wall is open 29 September – 14 October and 20–22 October, 11am to 4pm
- Location: Touring Gallery C
- Exhibition number: 1069

This year’s weekly ArtBite programme is about to start! From Friday 10 February, we will again offer a weekly presentation of a work on display here at Te Puna o Waiwhetū. The aim of these 30-minute talks is to give you an art break in the middle of your day. We know you’re busy, so this isn’t a long lecture meant to take up too much of your time. And they’re free. With a new work presented each Friday at 12.30pm, the information will be fresh so you can impress your friends during your weekend socialising.
