Many of our products are made by local artists. We stock a wide range of art and photo cards from Tairāwhiti artists, jewellery by Michael Stammers, ceramics from potters Seymour May, Chris Henwood and Heather Van Wyk, weaving by Julia Gould, and photographic prints by Kerry Fox.
All purchases at the museum shop support the activities of the museum. Friends of the Museum receive a 10% discount on all purchases (excluding sales).
The museum also frequently hosts selling exhibitions by local artists, including the annual Gisborne Artists’ Society and Potters Group exhibition. These exhibitions are a wonderful opportunity to take home a unique work and support practicing Tairāwhiti artists and craftspeople. Friends of the Museum also receive a 10% discount on all purchases from selling exhibitions.
We welcome ideas for new projects and exhibitions so if you have something in mind, please get in touch – we would love to hear from you!
