Gow Langsford is a commercial art space committed to fostering and promoting the best contemporary art from New Zealand and abroad. In two inner-city Auckland locations the Gallery represents established New Zealand and international artists. Having celebrated its 25th Anniversary in 2012, Gow Langsford is one of the country’s most established galleries and is widely regarded as its most influential dealer gallery.
The Kitchener St Gallery, located directly opposite the Auckland Art Gallery, is focused on curated exhibitions and also has a second viewing space dedicated to editions. The generous dimensions of the Lorne St Gallery allow for the exhibition of large-scale works and installations. Alongside a regular and varied exhibition schedule, Gow Langsford is a market leader in works on the secondary market.
The Gallery’s experienced staff provides comprehensive art collection advice. This service is client-centered and encompasses acquisitions; valuations; restoration and framing advice; investment opportunities and collection management.

Reuben's upcoming exhibition Tougher than Diamonds will feature a selection of recent glitter paintings from the exhibition The Aroma of Black at Milford Gallery Queenstown, as well as three large panels from the seminal work Whakapapa, Get Down Upon Your Knees.
Across his work, Paterson has used pattern to reference traditional kōwhaiwhai, his grandmother’s dresses, father’s ties, wallpaper designs and other textiles – all evoking nostalgia for another era.
'Tougher than Diamonds' is supported by Gow Langsford Gallery and Milford Galleries Dunedin and Queenstown. This event is in association with Wintec and Spark International Festival of Music, Media, Arts and Design.
This event will be followed by a panel discussion at 7pm - 'Creative Confluences: Merging Art Practices and Trans-disciplinary Collaborations' which will include academics Lisa Reihana (Artist), Julianne Pierce (Creative Producer, Australia), Deborah Lawler-Dormer (Curator), and Jennifer Gillam (Artist). This panel has been organised by Dr Isabelle Delmotte from the University of Waikato Screen & Media Programme.
