We welcome you to join us at Parliament’s Bowen House for an exhibition showcase from some of our favourite artists. Artists who are self-taught, intuitive, visionary and raw. A diverse group who all display their own unique language and points of view, rather than following traditional conventions or responding to art trends. 

It's art that will make you feel feelings. Art that challenges you and art that breaks a few rules.

Bowen House Exhibition Space, entrance on 84 Lambton Quay, Wellington

Show runs from 6th November until 5th December

Gallery open Wednesday and Thursdays 10am-3pm

If visiting, just a heads up - you’ll be required to go through parliamentary security.

Artwork will be for sale but due to being on Parliament grounds, no cash can be exchanged on site. Luckily for ya’ll, we're launching our online shop from 5 November. 

In this online shop/gallery you’re invited to purchase artwork by artists who are driven to create. Works that are bold and unself-conscious. Works that sometimes might be harder to find. We want to make it easy for you to view and purchase some of the unique, most challenging and exciting art that New Zealand has to offer. Just in time for Christmas! 

Opportunity Arts advocates alongside, empowers and provides practical support for artists of diverse backgrounds who face barriers to participation in the arts; supporting them to develop individual, sustainable arts practices.

We work with talented and dedicated, emerging artists, who for various reasons (for example, disability) require additional support to access opportunities that can increase their audience, profile, income, sense of pride and purpose.

We are passionate that with this mahi we can encourage social change and diversify the New Zealand contemporary art scene. Giving a voice and platform to those who are often unheard and unseen within this community and wider society.

We thank the following artists for putting their trust in us and allowing us to showcase them at ‘Opportunity Arts visits Parliament”
