Akaroa Orion Powerhouse Gallery Events

Brief Description

The newly refurbished 'Orion Powerhouse Gallery' comes to life in the warmer months when Akaroa is full of visitors and holiday-makers. The gallery hosts exhibitions featuring artists from Banks Peninsula and beyond, many of national and international recognition. It also provides a wonderful venue for intimate musical events and varied workshops throughout the year.

Update May 2017:
While our 2016-17 season of exhibitions has now finished, other arts-related activities are happening in the Orion Powerhouse Gallery over the winter months.  This last weekend six people attended Ben Reid’s Printmaking Workshop.   On 17 June, the North Canterbury Artist, Ivan Button, will be tutoring 12 members at a Watercolour Painting Class in the Gallery.  This workshop is now full.

The 8th August this year marks the 40th anniversary of The Gallery Akaroa Inc’s  first committee meeting which was held in the Orion Powerhouse Gallery on 8 August 1977.
Committee members, along with our wonderful team of exhibition minders, will be celebrating this anniversary with a cocktail party in the Gallery that evening.

Saturday, 21st October sees the opening of next season’s series of exhibitions when we present “Summer II” – another 'Cash n Carry exhibition' featuring the work of many well-known local & Canterbury artisans.

In the meantime we are hoping to find enough local artists who will be willing to show ‘artwork with a French theme’ so that the Orion Powerhouse Gallery will be open to the public during this year’s French Festival, 5-7 October.  Watch this space…..
