Purpose Gallery

About us

An art gallery with purpose. Based in the vibrant township of Mapua in the beautiful Nelson Region, we are a retail outlet for beautiful bespoke New Zealand art - paintings, pottery, sculpture and more that gives spaces PURPOSE.

The idea for Purpose Gallery came out of facing the challenges of living in a rapidly changing world.  How do you find purpose in what you do that is more than just a job, or the place you live?  We experimented with a variety of ideas and settled on one for our new direction - finding beauty in art and taking that to the world, from New Zealand.

Our Covid-19 Policy

As we are living in interesting times, our policy for operating the gallery under NZ Government COVID-19 restrictions can be found here.
