Rona Gallery is in the heart of the seaside community of Eastbourne, Wellington.

An art gallery and bookshop with warm and expert staff who are artists, writers and passionate readers.Richard and Joanna acquired Rona Gallery in 1999, specialising in local New Zealand paintings
and transformed the sleepy seaside gallery into a must see Wellington art gallery. A vibrant attraction that international visitors have compared favourably to some of the top galleries in New York. Joanna's deep knowledge of literacy and literature makes her the perfect person to handpick our children's books. And Richard Ponder's knowledge and love of art has attracted some of New Zealand's best artists, including Ken Hunt, Darcy Nicholas and Michael Ponder.
