Rona Gallery is a fine art gallery 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.

We offer free shipping within New Zealand, and if you live in Lower Hutt or Wellington, Richard offers a free hanging service to help you find the perfect piece and hang it well.

More information about Rona Gallery, and Joanna and Richard, is here on our About Us page. Or go straight to our webshop for art, books, and gifts.
