Art galleries

We're an arty bunch, and we have some incredible galleries we recommend you visit while you are here.  Run by talented local artists, and an opera singer, these creative business owners love to talk all things art.

McAtamney Gallery, Geraldine

Our long-established gallery has moved to a new location on the Main Street of Geraldine, opposite the Village Inn. We offer a unique collection of original New Zealand art and design in a smaller, boutique space.

The new site provides a delightful gallery experience with a diverse collection of contemporary and historical pieces. Landscapes, abstract, figurative and still life paintings grace our walls.

Contemporary artists represented include Richard Bolton, Bernadette Parsons, Susanna Izard and Rachel Dewhirst.

Our secondary market include works by Austen Deans, Michel Tuffery, Esther Hope and Margaret Stoddart. These historical pieces are increasingly sought-after by collectors.

Contemporary jewellery by Debra Fallowfield, sculpture by Stafford Allpress, ceramics by Madeleine Child and photography by Simon Schollum are part of the gallery experience.

Located at 40A Talbot Street, Geraldine, the McAtamney Gallery is run by Carolyn McAtamney-Rasch.  Gallery hours are Friday to Monday and Wednesday, 10.30am to 3.30pm or any time by appointment.  Our works are available on-line, and home consultations are offered by appointment.

I look forward to welcoming you to our gallery!

Susan Badcock Gallery

Susan Badcock Studio was established in 2014 and exhibits work by her grandfather Douglas Badcock, father John Badcock and Susan herself and more recently other New Zealand artists in the gallery and online.

Gallery founder and director Susan Badcock has up until recently focussed on the artistic influence which has followed the family for the past four generations.  With a continually changing exhibition calendar we showcase the work of both emerging and established artists.

In 2018 Susan relocated to the first floor of Geraldine’s iconic Old Post Office building which has undergone a major restoration project that has seen the area opened into a light and welcoming gallery space. The multiple apartment-style rooms are a significant attraction for Susan who has an exhibition space for larger scales of work and a personal studio for her hand-colouring and photography.

The Gallery is open Tue - Saturday 10 - 2pm or by appointment 021 175 2853
