Geoff Wilson Gallery

The Geoff Wilson Gallery is closed during semester breaks.

The Geoff Wilson Gallery is a purpose built exhibition space displaying art by Northland’s best artists, as well as invited artists from elsewhere in Aotearoa/NZ and students studying art at NorthTec.

The exhibition programme aims to feature a range of contemporary art practices, including painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, ceramics, Maori art, video work, and installation art. Artworks are for sale in the gallery.

The gallery is an integral part of the learning experience of art students studying at NorthTec.  Students are involved in setting up and running their own exhibitions and community courses in Gallery Studies are run through the gallery.  Final year students on the Bachelor of Applied Arts and Maunga Kura Toi Maori Arts have their graduating exhibitions in the gallery.  View NorthTec's Arts programmes.
