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.


Open daily 10am to 4pm during exhibitions, except for public holidays. Windows Galleries - Viewable 24/7.

All galleries closed 14 to 17 March, for installation of new shows.

For many it is a highlight of Northart’s exhibition programme – and it will certainly add some colour and excitement to these dreary winter months! More...

Kristen College senior students Elaine and Nora have organised a fascinating exhibition that showcases art and drawings by children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
