Northart Members’ Midyear Exhibition


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.

Blue and White 

For over a thousand years, porcelain was one of the most universally admired and widely imitated products in the world. Since its invention in the seventh century, it has been a prime vehicle for the assimilation and transmission of culture, artistic symbols, themes, and designs across vast distances.
