Small is Beautiful - The Vivian Gallery


vivansmallshow The Vivian Gallery’s annual Small Show is becoming a much-anticipated event on the local Christmas calendar. It’s a fantastic opportunity to procure an affordable piece of high quality art by some of New Zealand’s foremost artists. The Vivian’s walls and spaces will be bursting with small-scale treasures.

Many of us are choosing to live in smaller houses and are attempting to de-clutter aspects of our lives. You don’t have to be a minimalist to live in a littler home – instead the smaller space lifestyle can encourage inventive and fresh ways of approaching the collecting and display of artworks.


This year we have invited twenty-plus artists to respond to the idea of the small aesthetic, so the show will be ‘bigger’ than ever.

The exhibition opens on Saturday 12 December at 11am, with drinks from 4.00 – 6.00pm and runs till Sunday 17 January. Note: any pieces purchased will not be able to be picked up before the end of the show.

Open daily 11.00am – 5.00pm
