SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE in our Xmas Show!

Eclectic – varied – exciting – bright – accomplished – these are just few descriptors for our end-of-year Exhibition at Kapiti Gallery.

The “Christmas Show” has plenty of gifts to choose from, as well as art in several media, jewellery, pottery and stitching, sculptural works, greetings cards, art prints… and so much more.

ATTRACTIVE FAMILY LOCATION

Bring a friend and visit your local gallery on the coast: Kapiti Gallery in the Matai Road Reserve at 192 Matai Road, Raumati Beach. Children will enjoy the recently refreshed playground; there are a couple of picnic tables and plenty of on- and off-street parking.

BUY LOCAL!

Every item is for sale, and each one is made by a Kapiti Coast artisan, crafter and/or artist.

JOIN US to create in great company: 2023 subscriptions – payable by the end of January – work out to less than $2.00 per week. You can join as many groups as you wish, and display and sell your work in our gallery or Arts and Crafts shop in Raumati village. If you’re already a member, share this post with a friend and encoourage them to join.

We’re open Thursday to Sunday, 10.00 am-3.00 pm until Christmas Eve.

The gallery will then be closed for a refresh & refurbishment until mid-January 2023.

Happy holidays!
