kereru gallery features the work of established artist Karen Walters and acclaimed jeweller Mike Walters and exhibits work from a 'hand picked' selection of exquisitely talented NZ artists whom they represent throughout the year.
The gallery is recognised for it's contemporary earthy flavour and uniquely exudes this theme through a diverse range of work on display. Sculptures, jewellery, paintings, ceramics and cast glass can be viewed here within an elongated modern white gallery space situated beneath the upper living quarters of Mike and Karen Walters and nestled to the outer side of the quirky and picturesque Mapua Wharf.
It functions as both a gallery and workshop space. The gallery opens up to 3 exhibition spaces and also contains both a jewellers workshop and sculptors workshop on site that can be viewed by the public.
At Kereru Gallery we wish to provide viewers with an ever-changing range of fresh and uplifting visual stimulation. Throughout the year work is being constantly updated and throughout the busy Summer and Autumn months the gallery features new work by Kereru Artists within a series of themed Group Exhibitions.
Mike and Karen are constantly creating new pieces within their workshop spaces at Kereru for exhibitions, display and commission work.
Kereru Gallery can provide personal advice on the suitability of artwork within your home. This can include; artwork(s) being superimposed on an image of your wall or surrounding space, and/or artwork given 'on loan' overnight in order to give confidence and understanding prior to a potential purchase being made.
Kereru Gallery has experience in packaging and freighting worldwide, ensuring artwork makes it's way to you safely, economically and efficiently.
Winter is for making...
Well as the cold sets in, we get stuck into creating lots of new work. Karen will be working on a number of private commissions as well as organising and making new work for the summer exhibitions, and Mike will be producing hand-made pieces for private customers as well as working on his new jewellery range for the gallery. In saying this, the gallery opening hours will be reduced to Thursday thru till Saturday, however it will still be looking gorgeous in these hours and feature regular new work by our talented stable of artists! 🙂
Thursday - Saturday : 11 - 4pm
Sunday : By appointment
