Good Selection Of Local Artists
If you are looking for affordable and creditable NZ art you could try this small selling gallery in Papanui. I was astonished to see the quantity and quality of the stock here, with a large variety of artists and styles of wall art. I found some work by artists I already was aware of as well as some people whose work is new to me. There is a variety of media; a few photos, works on paper, right through to large acrylics and oils on canvas. I think that this is a great place to find a piece of art whether you are local or a visitor from overseas looking for something interesting to adorn your walls and remind you of NZ. Lots of the works are quite small so would be easy to pack safely but it looks as though the gallery will also ship as I noticed lots of bubble wrapped pieces.
The gallery is situated in a small residential side street across the Main North Road from North lands Mall so you will find good bus links to and from here. There is also off street parking.
Art Box Gallery has joined forces with Sandalwood Designs to showcase these stunning luxury two million dollar apartments right in the heart of Christchurch at the edge of Hagley Park. Fiona Renton from Sandalwood Designs created her magic touch with interiors to fit out this brand new showhome and we are delighted to exhibit our original artworks in the rooms in order that they can be marketed by Adam Heazlewood of Bayleys. With and earthy, classy feel they are bound to impress any prospective buyers. We would be happy to move right in as they are simply beautiful.
In the last few months Art box has regularly been contributing images to Instagram and we've decided we love it! We have enjoyed quite a few sales through Instagram and we are pleased to have seen our followers grow. The 1000 target has been achieved this week and its great fun looking back on our account to see art, ideas and a bit of fun along the way. We hope you will join us if you haven't already. Are we addicted? I think yes!
At Art Box we like to offer hanging advice to our clients if they require and we often hang work that has been purchased at the gallery as a complimentary service. We can also recommend Hamish Noster from the Christchurch business 'Nailed It' Hamish has lots of experience hanging not only paintings but heavier items such as mirrors. He can be contacted on 027 380 3579 and view his website www.naileditarthang.co.nz.
Art Box spent a great weekend recently in Auckland for the 2019 Art Fair and to visit a number of galleries around the city. Galleries from New Zealand and further afield were showcasing their artists works in The Cloud on the wharf in the central city. A wide variety of original art from sculptures to paintings were on display and for sale to the general public. Very informative trip meeting other gallery owners and checking out new artists.
At Art Box Gallery we pride ourselves on a wide variety of contemporary and affordable art. We are know as the 'little gallery with lots of art' and we enjoy working with our clients and interior designers to find the right piece of original art to enhance any home or business.

From time to time we get asked how a painting might look like in a room. We are pleased to show you that this is now possible with the help of an app and so we hope you find this useful to imagine the art on a wall. Here's 'McKenzie Gold' by Christine Maynard on a bedroom wall space but we could easily place it in a lounge - the wonder of technology!
At Art box Gallery we are always delighted to receive great feedback from our happy clients. We have a proven track record of shipping nationally and internationally so if you see something you love on our website please send us a message by email, facebook, instagram or phone and we will get back to you as soon as possible with a price and/or shipping/insurance details as well as extra images from all angles.

Here's our most recent feedback from a client in Queenstown who purchased 'Hurunui' and oil on canvas by Galina Kim:
The painting arrived today. It’s really lovely. You did a terrific job with the packaging.
Thanks for the card, and the bio on Galina Kim. I’m thrilled with the great service that you provided, and would definitely purchase another artwork from your little gallery.
We love happy customers!! We look forward to hearing from you soon.
At Art Box Gallery we like to have fresh works for our regular clients so we recently headed in the central South Island on an art collecting mission. Its always wonderful to catch up with our talented artists, see what they are creating and choose new work for our gallery in Christchurch. Here's a tempting selection of work that we crammed into the car just for you!
