A Gallery Without Walls

The Connells Bay Centre for Sculpture is the only genuinely open-to-the-public site in New Zealand that has commissioned sculpture implanted into the landscape – it is a living gallery where the roof is the sky and the hills and gullies are the walls.

This TVNZ Artsville documentary tells the story of how this artistic venue came into being and also follows the creation and installation of a piece of sculpture into this unique landscape. 

John and Jo Gow have created a place for exhibiting large-scale outdoor sculptures by New Zealand artists. Their aim was to create an experience of contemporary sculpture for everyone that will last for generations to come. A Gallery Without Walls tells the story of the people of Connells Bay. It’s an exploration the values and thought processes behind New Zealand sculpture art and a showcase of the artists and their works at this most unique artspace.
