The Monterey Art Gallery first opened for business in October 1999 to provide affordable fine art to clients in New Zealand and overseas.
It was the first gallery of its type in the area and it continues to provide a unique New Zealand art experience. The gallery, owned and managed by Sandy Starr, is situated in the heart of historical Howick, opposite one of Auckland's oldest churches, All Saints.
One of the features of the gallery is the large plaster ceiling dome, over which is painted a beautiful baroque-style fresco by celebrated, award winning artist, Alvin Pankhurst.
At the Monterey we provide a warm friendly environment offering access to a wide range of artists and their works. The Director, Sandy, is an accomplished interior designer and she encourages a consultation in your home to ensure the chosen piece is the right one.
The Monterey Art Gallery deals in paintings, sculpture, ceramics, glass and jewellery and only presents art from New Zealand artists.
