Wall to Wall
A day in the life of our Wall to Wall exhibition.
Join us in creating a massive piece of public art!
This is your chance to pick up a paint brush and make your mark on the Gallery walls. This October we want everyone in Ōtautahi Christchurch to help us create a new exhibition – a colossal public paint-out of one of our downstairs galleries. 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.

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.
