Whanganui Arts At The Centre

Whanganui Arts Centre

Venue for artists and craftspeople

Originally a disused New Zealand Railways bus garage, the Whanganui Arts Centre was established in 1989 to provide a venue for artists and craftspeople to exhibit and sell their work. Over the years the Centre has grown and developed, overseen by architect Mark Southcombe, into the purpose-built facility it is today.

Over the years the Whanganui Arts Centre has exhibited everything from paintings to pottery, and installation to performance. A proud supplier of high standard venue in the Whanganui community with the enthusiastic support from artists in the community.

Each year around 15,000 people visit the Whanganui Arts Centre to participate in a wide range of workshops and classes, view exhibitions of art, visit the Saturday Craft Market and check out the excellent range of art supplies at Left Bank Art Supplies.
