Multilingual words of welcome emblazoned on Northart’s window frontage invite all visitors into the gallery, open daily from 10am to 4pm during exhibitions. Tucked behind the Northcote shopping centre and alongside the library in the Kaipatiki region of Auckland’s North Shore, Northart is just ten minutes from downtown Auckland, with plenty of free parking and bus stops nearby. The gallery provides an accessible and community focussed programme of exhibitions by emerging and established, local and national artists, which changes out every three weeks, so there’s always something new and interesting. You’ll also discover an associated programme of regular public events, classes and arts activities. So drop in next time you are in the neighbourhood, or make a special trip. You’re always welcome at Northart.

"no matter what they say you don't have to stay in the lines"
Some of the most exciting young jewellery makers on the local scene showcase their work in Northart’s contemporary jewellery exhibition. While the show has no set theme, the 20 or so designers have taken inspiration from curator Michelle Wilkinson’s title ‘No matter what they say you don’t have to stay in the lines’. The show is made possible through a grant from Creative NZ Communities (Auckland), and will open with a special event at 4pm on Sunday 15 May, then runs daily from 10am to 4pm until 1 June.
