Art at Rongo & in Karamea

Staying at Rongo is like living in a contemporary art museum. The walls of the hostel are adorned with original artworks, many of which have resulted from the artist-in-residency programme. We have hosted artists from many countries including; Canada, the United States, Northern Ireland, Japan, Israel, Australia and France.

Artists are invited to apply for a residency by contacting Paul Murray.

The Global Gypsy Gallery in Karamea displays the work of photographer Gerar Toye who runs the gallery during the summer months.
