Custom Picture Framing & Fine Art Printing in The Tannery

Our Story

Our Story

Supporting New Zealand based artists since 2010

Magma Gallery was established 2010 in Lyttelton in the historic building of the former Canterbury Hotel in and destroyed short after in the earthquakes. It took three years to find a new home in 2013 at The Tannery in Christchurch, a Victorian inspired shopping mall set up in the old factory buildings of a former tannery.

Since then Magma Gallery has been in the position again to support New Zealand based artists and to provide a platform for emerging artists. The gallery features original New Zealand art, paintings, limited edition prints and framed prints, fine artistic jewellery and beautiful hand-made objects in ceramics and glass.

Art restoration, collectables, professional print & framing consultation

A framing workshop was integrated into the gallery which delivers high quality custom framing services and giclee printing and supports artists in displaying their art.
