Imagine your next corporate or private function held in the wonderful waterfront gallery and even better, surrounded by quality original artworks when coinciding with an exhibition. As a venue for after hours functions the Academy Galleries are ideal.
National corporations as well as Wellington businesses frequently hire the space for events that range from fully catered sit-down dinners to early evening cocktail parties. When these events take place during an Academy exhibition the guests are able to appreciate work by some of New Zealand’s leading artists.
The New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts is an independent non-profit organisation, is registered as a charity and receives no direct funding support from any private enterprise, local or central government agencies. Hiring our gallery spaces out for functions is an additional income stream to our main activity of exhibiting the latest New Zealand art by New Zealand artists for the appreciation of and purchase by New Zealanders.
