TGTB Gallery (est. 2015) was the transformation of a neglected former doctors clinic into the first art gallery in Tāmaki, East Auckland.
It is a not-for-profit, artist-run initiative that seeks to provide opportunities for artists of all ages to present their art publicly and engage local communities with quality art experiences.
Its purpose was to fill the gap missing in the community for a much-needed space dedicated to presenting and viewing visual art. The aim was to cultivate and encourage the accessibility, appreciation and culture of the visual arts within the Tāmaki community.
The doors closed on the physical gallery space in April 2017 after 12 exhibitions that included 54 artists (35 under 18 years old) and over 1200 visits.
Between 2017 and 2020 TGTB Gallery occupied no permanent physical space with exhibitions popping-up in temporary locations across East Auckland.
TGTB Gallery has found a new home at 11 Mayfair Place, Glen Innes and will re-open in April 2021.
Massive thanks to Tāmaki Regeneration Company and Street Artearoa for their support to make this happen!
