The Gallery's artistic program is developed over a 3 years cycle engaging in and presenting exhibitions that explore a range of ideas, mediums and practices. Exhibitions are scheduled on a seasonal basis with a maximum of 20 exhibitions a year.
The Gallery has 9 distinct exhibition spaces as well as an external panel project space. It brings in a small number of outside exhibitions and projects and develops a program of in-house contemporary art exhibitions focusing on artists creating new work. Exhibitions although often diverse in nature are integrated in the program so that contemporary exhibitions can also have a community focus, or broad themed shows are have a strong local relevance.

The James Kiwi Watercolour Prize
The James Kiwi Watercolour Prize is a biennial award of $2000 for a work featuring watercolour as the predominant medium.
The prize was initiated from the bequest of Mr James Wambola Kiwi, a local watercolourist who left monies in his will for the establishment of an art prize that would highlight the techniques and subtleties of the watercolour medium.
The next James Kiwi Watercolour Prize will be held in 2014
