About our galleries

Gow Langsford Gallery: Lorne St is situated on the ground floor of the former Lorne Street backpackers building. The building was completely refurbished in 2008 and its generous dimensions facilitate optimum exhibition of large scale sculpture and painting. The Lorne St Gallery will continue its regular exhibition schedule of shows by represented and international artists.

Gow Langsford Gallery: Kitchener St is in the historic St James Building on the corner of Kitchener and Wellesley Streets opposite the Auckland Art Gallery, and only a short walk from Queen Street. The Kitchener St Gallery complements the Lorne St Gallery exhibition schedule and allows for more curated exhibitions. Some exhibits will run across both Kitchener St and Lorne St Galleries. Gow Langsford Gallery Kitchener St also houses our editions and mulitples collection.

Street parking is available on Lorne Street, Kitchener Street, or alternatively there are five nearby parking buildings.

About Gow Langsford

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, Lorne Street and Kitchener Street, the Gallery represents over thirty established New Zealand and international artists. 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.

Gow Langsford Gallery was established by John Gow and Gary Langsford in a converted gas station in the Auckland suburb of Grey Lynn in 1987 and has developed into one of New Zealand's most significant dealer galleries. The gallery will celebrate thirty years in business in 2017.

The Gallery has been more than a vocation for both founding Directors who are passionate advocates for the visual arts and committed to the development of the careers of the artists they represent. In 2015, Anna Jackson also became Director of the Gallery. Together the Directors’ dedication has fostered the growth of contemporary art in New Zealand and enabled the careers of many of this country’s most notable artists, such as Judy Millar, John Pule, Max Gimblett, Dick Frizzell and Rueben Paterson. They have actively sought to introduce local audiences to international art, and in turn, international visitors to New Zealand artists. They have hosted one-man shows by Pablo Picasso (1998), Damien Hirst (2010), Bernar Venet (2006 and 2012), Donald Judd (2002), Tony Cragg (2005 and 2011) and Andy Warhol (2013). They have enjoyed success placing works in major collections both in public institutions and private homes, locally and internationally.
