Art Gallery

The Poatina Arts Gallery is located adjacent to the village green at the heart of Poatina.  Adjoining the popular Tiers Tea Lounge, it is a refreshing purpose-built space set aside to display visual art of all kinds. Regular exhibitions feature both local artists and those connected to Poatina in other ways such as through our Artist in Residence Program or annual Faith and the Arts Summer School event.

The volunteer artist-run gallery aims to support emerging and established artists by providing a low-cost, quality exhibition venue in the context of the supportive community of artists and villagers who reside in Poatina.

Opening 10am - 4pm Thursday to Sunday each week, the gallery is a popular destination for visitors to the village, offering the opportunity to enjoy a quality hot beverage and delicious locally produced food while taking a moment to relax and enjoy the art.

Exhibitions run year-round, generally for 8 weeks at a time and exhibition proposals may be submitted at any time to the Gallery Coordinator, Pamela Horsley.  Please contact Pamela on This email address is being protected from spambots.
