New Art & Photography Gallery in Napier by Hawkes Bay Photographers Richard Wood & Chris Helliwell

Introducing Cathedral Gallery! The art and photo gallery is owned and operated by myself and Chris Helliwell. Our passions have always focused on the printed finished artwork. Myself as a creative photographer, and Chris, a passionate photographer, picture framer and art preservation expert, have joined forces to bring not only our own art pieces to the gallery, but also those from artists all round New Zealand. The gallery's beautiful art deco rooms are situated upstairs and close to the beach in Napier City in Hawke's Bay. The gallery's primary focus is on both art and photographic limited edition prints that complement the home and office. Art can be purchased both from the gallery itself or you can buy art online.

After a few power cut issues at our art gallery opening on Saturday, we came out of the darkness like a sort of big reveal. Suddenly people were confronted by a vast array of beautiful visuals, music, food and beautiful wine so generously provided by Trinity Hill.

Thank you to everyone who came and helped us celebrate. From friends, to family, our artists, to industry... we appreciate you. A special thanks also to Ilford who has provided the gallery some beautiful paper stock for our managed limited editions.
