About TAG

Tauranga Art Gallery is the first public art gallery in the Western Bay of Plenty. 
 
Since opening in 2007, it has consistently delivered high quality exhibitions within its contemporary gallery space.

Situated on the corner of Wharf and Willow Streets, in the heart of the CBD, the building has been designed to meet modern art gallery standards. The Gallery opened to the public on Saturday 20th October, 2007.

The Gallery delivers exhibitions of historical, and contemporary art. Exhibitions are developed in house by Gallery staff with the balance being a mix of touring exhibitions from other institutions and artist projects.

Education & Visitor Programmes

A range of education and visitor programmes are developed around the exhibitions to enhance our visitors' experience.

Education is a key focus for Tauranga Art Gallery. Our education staff tailor programmes to make use of the current exhibitions and align them with the national education curriculum. See our Schools section for further information.

Visitor programmes include debates, floor talks, guided tours, seminars, screenings, performances and artist residencies. See our Events section for bookings and more details.
