Our dearest clients

As always we would like to first and foremost thank you, the customers, we are honoured by your continued support of both the artists and gallery itself.

Today is the first official day of autumn, and with that, we feel it is a good time to talk about the exciting changes that have recently taken place here at Form Gallery. Most notable for us is our new gallery assistant, Ryan, who joins us from an artwork and picture framing background. Ryan has arrived just in time for a new exhibition launch, as well as a change in Workshop@468 with one of the resident jewellers, Winnie Chin, moving out of the workspace. We are currently still advertising the available workbench, and are looking forward to meeting artists who are interested in this space.

Group exhibition ‘Animal Wonderland’ has just finished here at the gallery; we would like to thank all of those who came to see the works and support the artists, and of course all of the artists who were involved: Tatyanna Meharry, Karyn Roberts, Fiona Tunnicliffe and Lukeke Design.

We are pleased to announce our new exhibition schedule showcasing artists local and national, including a show starting next week featuring award-winning ceramic artist Yi-Ming Lin. Yi-Ming’s exhibition ‘A Garden Dream’ will commence with a launch evening here at Form Gallery at 5:30pm on the 8th of March, and like all of our exhibitions, will run for 3 to 4 weeks. For the works in this exhibition Yi-Ming has taken inspiration from the philosophy of the home garden and what it means to us all - whether a peaceful private paradise, or a functional urban landscape, gardens can inspire a connection to nature as well as a connection to art. This is the first time Yi-Ming has been represented in a solo exhibition here at Form Gallery, and we are very excited to invite you all to see and enjoy the work of this established artist.

This format will continue throughout the year as we bring you more artists work, exhibiting a range of styles and mediums; April presents us with the ceramic works of husband and wife duo Katie Gold and Owen Bartlett, while in May we will be hosting stone sculptor, Doug Neil. We are very pleased with the opportunity to host our clients and artists at these regular events, as we enjoy the support this brings to the art community and its growth in our beautiful city of Christchurch.

We would like to remind everyone of our current opening hours, as these have changed in recent months. The hours are: Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-5pm. Additional viewing times can be arranged with us if you wish, please feel free to contact the team here at Form at anytime by email: or phone: 03 377 1211. For more information about anything mentioned above, please visit or check out our Facebook page. We look forward to seeing you in the coming few weeks.
