Sculpture on the Gulf

Sculpture on the Gulf is arguably the most influential of all New Zealand’s ‘galleries without walls’, and has gone on to inspire similar exhibitions around the world. Set amongst some of the most magnificent coastal landscape in the world, the undulating walkway has served as a temporary home for pieces created by a who’s who of New Zealand art. The next event will be held in 2022.
Our Matiatia headland is tūrangawaewae – a place for all artists to stand tall. Haere mai! Welcome!
