We are a thriving Community project with an Art Gallery, run by volunteers, open from 10am – 4pm daily throughout the year. We offer a wide range of artwork produced by talented artists, who reside on, or have strong connections with, Great Barrier Island. The Gray’s Homestead museum onsite which takes visitors through a journey of early settlor history on the island through stories and artefacts.
The gallery is the perfect place to pick up a creative souvenir to remember your stay on the island or gift for a loved one. Our resident artists have such a strong connection to the island they capture the beauty beyond what any photograph could. We also have a clever bunch of natural skincare entrepeneurs on the island and the gallery stocks many of these products.
And, the great news – Its right next to the airport, so whilst your waiting for your flight, you can head on over for a last shopping fix.
The gallery also holds group and solo exhibitions throughout the year, workshops with visiting and local artists, and weekly, through the middle of the year, kids art group. They also hold market days where artists have stalls displaying and creating works.
This is a community project run by a charitable trust who return a large percentage of the sale to the artist and island economy. With a small percentage to help with the everyday running of the gallery, winter workshops, kids art club and various events.
Head to the gallery, enjoy and buy local, to support local!
