The Old Brick Workshop is home to Wellington's very own Contemporary Art Gallery
The Gallery was launched in October 2015 as venue No. 1 for Somerset Arts Weeks Festival.
It was host to 13 contemporary artists and attracted over 800 visitors to its inaugural event.
A full program of exhibitions have been hosted through 2016. Shows that were modern, thought provoking and diverse. We're looking forward to bringing artists and the community together for many more exhibitions and events in the coming year.
