Ashburton Art Gallery


Located in the heart of Canterbury, the Ashburton Art Gallery (AAG) is prominently situated on West Street and overlooks the magnificent Ashburton Domain and Baring Square West. 

The Gallery prides itself on its thought-provoking and innovative exhibitions by local and national artists. The regularly changing exhibitions are complemented by education and arts-associated events, and these are free to all. 

Regular exhibitions on the Gallery calendar are the Zonta Ashburton Female Art Award in March, and the Ashburton Society of Arts exhibition in July. The Gallery is the custodian of the work of award-winning children’s book author and illustrator David Elliot, whose drawings and illustrations are on display at various times throughout the year. 

We are open seven days a week and can be found on the upper floor of the Ashburton Art Gallery and Heritage Centre.
