Become a Friend
Become a Friend and let’s make Christchurch Art Gallery New Zealand’s most-loved gallery. As a Friend of the Gallery you’ll be part of great talks, events and gain a special insight into what’s happening at your gallery.
Hidden Light Postcards
$10 for a set of 6 assorted postcards
The Friends have produced a limited edition set of postcards to accompany the exhibition Hidden Light: Early Canterbury and West Coast Photography running until 25 August 2019.
All proceeds from the sales of the postcards will go towards supporting the Friends.
