Bottle Creek Gallery

Community gallery

Shows last 4-5 weeks

Support our talented local artists by visiting the Bottle Creek Gallery. 

Established in 1998, Bottle Creek is Pātaka’s community gallery. The name comes from the late 60’s creative colony located on the shores of the Pāuatahanui inlet and included artists and writers Robin White, Sam Hunt and Michael King.


About the space

Bottle Creek is reserved for artists and community groups who reflect or engage with the communities of Porirua.

Bottle Creek Gallery has no rental fee for local artists and groups. 

The Bottle Creek Gallery features 32 metres of linear wall space, which can be extended by use of our movable walls and 130 square metres of floor space. 

Works don’t have to be for sale but if they are, Pātaka takes a 35% commission on all sold works.

To exhibit in the Bottle Creek Gallery Artists/Groups must first submit a proposal to our Exhibition Committee.

Exhibitions run for 4-5 weeks
