Jonathan Smart Gallery has been showcasing contemporary New Zealand art since 1987. The gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of top drawer, contemporary visual art, ranging from painting and photography to sculpture and moving image work.
Exhibitions change on a monthly basis, with a variety of solo and group shows by artists ranging from established or senior practitioners to those very early in their career. Or, as local critic Andrew Paul Wood described the gallery in a recent Avenues Magazine: “Jonathan Smart Gallery tends to the more cutting and playful edge, but with many big names also, as well as younger emerging artists. Jonathan Smart is one of the universe’s gentlemen and a jolly nice guy.”
