By far one of the best galleries in Northland, if not the best!
Village Arts is Hokianga’s community art gallery. Scheduled solo and group exhibitions plus a showcase space highlight the area’s established and emerging artists.
The spacious white-walled gallery showcases contemporary painting, photography, mixed media, sculpture, furniture, object, jewellery, ceramics, and traditional and contemporary Māori arts.
Village Arts is open from 10am-4pm 7 days.
On Te Ara Manawa: The Heart Trail and Northland Art Trail, Village Arts is located on the main street in historic Kohukohu on the northern shores of Aotearoa/New Zealand’s spectacularly beautiful Hokianga Harbour.
Village Arts is a non-profit charitable organisation that operates under the umbrella of the Kohukohu Community Trust and aims to support the development of a robust and vibrant arts community in Kohukohu and Hokianga.
