New premises: 5 Don Street, Invercargill
Invercargill Public Art Gallery (formally Anderson Park Art Gallery) is responsible for the care, collection and curation of Invercargill’s public art collection. The gallery has built a comprehensive collection of visual and applied arts that includes early European through to contemporary New Zealand art. There is a strong representation of local artists and artworks relating to Southland.
Closure of the gallery at Anderson House
During 2013, the Invercargill City Council undertook a programme of investigations into the susceptibility of all their buildings to seismic events. It concluded that Anderson House did not meet the current minimum standards and, as a result, Anderson House was closed to the public in January 2014. Until a new venue is found, we remain actively involved in the Invercargill arts scene. We are currently exhibiting highlights from our art collection at a pop-up gallery on 5 Don Street. Please check our 'upcoming' and 'current' exhibition pages for more information.
As part of our Kids can Curate exhibition, gallery staff are running free after-school art workshops inspired by the artwork on display. Register now by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
