Alpha Gallery is the gateway to Alpha Art Studio – a community studio space for adults with intellectual disability to come and create and also to learn valuable life skills.

We do it all from cooking, IT classes, Soccer to printmaking, jewellery and painting. We also volunteer in the local community with organizations such as city mission, wellington time bank and meals on wheels.

Based in central wellington the studio opened a Gallery in July 2013. This group show “Ho Ho Homemade” will see loads of cheap art and craft for sale made by the artists of Alpha Art Studio, staff and some friends!

We will have our entire premises open from 10am-4pm Saturday 28th November for an open day.

This is an opportunity for the public to come and see what we do at our unique space. There will be :
- Entertainment and games
- A koha kitchen - cheap nom nom's!!
- a Koha present wrapping station (for outside purchases too) wrapt in handmade paper!
- face painting
- collaborative canvas
- all welcome, very family friendly.

Artist Denise Dennehy has this to say about exhibiting “I love it! It helps me to make sweet money, honey! It’s really good fun”.
This open day is also an opportunity to show all we have to offer the wider community:

- We have an accessible toilet with hoist and change bed available to use to the public.
- A professional gallery available to hire in 2016 for artists outside of our service.
- Various rooms available to hire for your next meeting or event.
- Our skills and talents as artists

If you can't make our open day - pop in 9am-4pm Monday-Friday 27th Nov-18th Dec to our wee "pop up shop" styled gallery show. Support local artists - buy local!
