Art Box Gallery is a fiesta of colour and painted form. This delightful gallery on Loftus St, Papanui now supports over 40 local artists whose exhibition spaces were lost with the closure of so many city galleries following the earthquakes.
If you appreciate art or are looking for original modern paintings at affordable prices to complement the decor of your new or renovated home, or business, this is the place to come to view a huge choice of styles and genres. Art Box is indeed “the little gallery with lots of art” and the prices range from under $50 up to $5,000. Beverley Frost, who owns the gallery, offers a personalised consultancy service in your home to help make artwork selection stress free and the gallery also has a layby programme. The artists undertake commissions so if you are after something specific be sure to let the gallery know.
Art Box Gallery’s website www.artboxgallery.info details the latest works and a warm and friendly welcome awaits all art lovers.
