Galleries and exhibition spaces
We have a number of galleries and spaces around Kāpiti, the star of which is Mahara Gallery.
As the District's Public Gallery, Mahara Gallery has an annual programme of high-calibre curated exhibitions and provides opportunities for Kāpiti Coast artists to exhibit. The gallery, located in Mahara Place in Waikanae, is operated by the Mahara Gallery Trust and receives funding from the Council, and is currently undergoing a rebuilding programme. Check out our Mahara Gallery upgrade page and the Mahara Gallery website for more information.
Paraparaumu and Ōtaki public libraries each provides an exhibition space, available to local artists and community groups. Find out more about the community art exhibition spaces.
The two library exhibition spaces are:
- Gillian & Roderick Deane Art Space, Paraparaumu Library
- Ngā Purapura, Ōtaki Library
