We will be closed for Christmas from December 23rd to January 31st, our first exhibition to start the new year in 2024 will be ‘Kaipara Awa – A River That Connects Us.’



The Kaipara River, which winds its way through our town, preceding the settlement of Helensville, and at times defining it, is as much a symbol as a physical body of water. This New Year at the Art Centre, we will be hosting an exhibition which reflects what our awa means to us. This show is open for all to participate in, young and old, and in any media of your choice. It is a purposefully broad subject which can be interpreted as imaginatively as desired.

Details and entry form can be found on our website  We are now accepting proposals for 2024 exhibitions. If you are an artist and wish to have an exhibition with us we would love to hear from you.
