About the TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre
The TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre is Auckland’s exciting new cultural destination. Located in the historic Pah Homestead in Monte Cecilia Park, Hillsborough, the Arts Centre opened to the public in August 2010, and has received over 300,000 visits to date.
The Pah Homestead was fully restored by the Auckland City Council together with support of TSB Bank from 2009 to 2010 as the new home of the James Wallace Arts Trust and its Collection.
The Arts Centre hosts a changing programme of exhibitions curated from the James Wallace Arts Trust Collection as well as regional touring exhibitions. The Arts Centre also runs ongoing community education programmes targeting Auckland schools and the wider public.
An artist in residency programme in association with Otago University is an important component of the Arts Centre. This partnership also provides for exhibitions curated from the extensive collections of the Hocken Library.
Many thanks to the Auckland Decorative and Fine Arts Society and its members who provide ongoing support to the Arts Centre through the provision of Volunteer Gallery Minders.
The TSB Bank Wallace Arts Centre is open to the public Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 3pm, and Saturday, Sunday and public holidays (excluding Mondays) from 10am to 5pm. Entry is by donation.
