Nestled down at the iconic Town Basin in Whangarei, this lovingly restored historic villa houses some real delights. Home to the thriving Northland Society of Arts, who were established back in 1989, they continue to host exhibition space for artists to hire, along with a boutique shop filed with unique pieces of local artworks.

Following the Hatea River, and just a quick walk through our Heritage Rose gardens, you will find the Reyburn Art Studio. This creative space houses the Firebirds Ceramic group and Fire Frenzy along with a main studio space for various groups to hire.

Entry to the Gallery is free but a donation is always appreciated. Run as a non-profit by mostly volunteers, your donation would help us to keep supporting Northland Artists.

Art from the Heart

The Bay of Islands Painting Group has been going for at least 40 years.
The members meet weekly on a Thursday at the Waitangi Yacht Club, from where there are beautiful views of the Bay. The members come from the wider Bay of Islands area, including Paihia, Opua, Kerikeri, Waimate North.

Membership is limited to thirty, and the age, ability and experience of the members is varied. Beginners and more professional artists work happily together, and because of the friendship and camaraderie within the group, help and advice is often asked for, and freely given to all who wish it. Most weeks see the artists working on their own paintings, but we do have the occasional workshop on a variety of mediums and topics. Also at least twice a year, we take the time to go on day trips visiting other galleries, which is an enriching experience.

We hope you enjoy viewing our work.

Whispers of the Wild

Jocelyn’s semi abstract land and seascapes are her response to unhurried moments spent observing and heeding the subtle messages of nature. Whispers of the Wild is a collection of Jocelyn’s inspired works, portraying a glimpse of her intuitive and expressive process.

Originally from South Africa, I now call New Zealand home. Residing in Mangawhai,  I am reminded daily of my connection to nature and the healing that goes with that. I see the amazing creativity in nature and the life lessons we can learn, which is then translated into my expressive paintings.

My artistic journey has been marked by exploration and self-study, developing experimental techniques in my acrylic and encaustic works. I indulge in playful curiosity and spontaneity, leaning heavily on my feelings to freely express what flows through from my encounters with the whispers in the wild- Jocelyn Friis
