Our Gallery Committee plans the gallery programme every year in August and invite applications from both emerging and established artists for approximately month-long exhibitions.

Fees for exhibitions do vary on the number of artists, a sample schedule can be provided on request. Te Huanui commission is 28.5% (25% plus GST), pricing supplied to the gallery should be inclusive of this.

If you’re not keen on a month-long exhibition, Gallery 2 might be for you. Artist members s can supply as many works as they like! To exhibit in Gallery 2, you’ll need to complete an Artist Membership form. Gallery 2 also has a 28.5% commission, so pricing will need to include this.

“Te Huanui” (the pathway, road, or highway), previously named the Selwyn Gallery, is run by the Malvern Community Arts Council.  We opened the exhibition gallery in 1998, and extended it in 2007, to further our aims of bringing quality art to the people of Malvern and promoting local artists. 

Te Huanui provides a modern exhibition space and contemporary design store in Darfield, Canterbury offering a dedicated platform for emerging and established New Zealand artists.  


We are proud to represent a wide selection of artistic mediums including painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, pottery, and glassware. Our exhibitions showcase an exciting selection
of contemporary local art at affordable prices.


Te Huanui is operated by volunteers who support the aims of the Malvern Community Arts Council and boasts a rich 20-year history. We are committed to supporting the visual arts and providing a unique and accessible experience for our ever growing community.
