Looking for an art gallery in Palmerston North? Taylor Jensen Fine Arts art gallery is owned and operated by local couple Stu and Phyllis Shwartz. When visiting Palmerston North this is simply a must do. You will find an exquisite collection of local arts and crafts.

We are located on the level just above the Palmerston North Library on George Street, look out for the steps beside the entrance to the library.

“We believe we have a treasure trove of regional arts and crafts, displayed in a beautiful gallery setting featuring paintings, sculpture, ceramics, glass, jewellery, furniture, woodwork & Maori handcrafts. We are also experts in Conservation framing, appraisals & restoration.”
– Stu Shwartz

The Gallery also has a changing exhibition space where 12 to 15 solo or group exhibitions are featured annually. Artist receptions and formal openings are advertised widely and personal invites are sent to the Gallery’s subscriber list. To receive exhibition notices, send us an e-mail requesting to be added to our mailing list.

Over the years, a significant number of exhibitions have been hosted on behalf of community organisations.  We are particularly proud of the involvement the gallery has had with art by handicapped individuals and groups.  Stuart was for a number of years on the board of the Verve Studio, an initiative of Manawatu Supporting Families in Mental Illness and he is currently a board member of the Artistic Solutions Trust.  Additionally, Taylor-Jensen Fine Arts has shown work by Creative Journeys.  Other community organisations hosted by the gallery are The Manawatu Spinners and Weavers Guild, The Embroiders Guild and The Art Enthusiasts Group.  Every couple of years we hold a fund-raising exhibition for Trade Aid featuring Tibetan Rugs and Carpets.  We have also shown the Graduate Shows of art students from Teacher’s College, Massey University, Ucol and the Wanaga O Aotearoa. The gallery has also shown work by the tutors of the Quay School of the Arts and artwork by the Manawatu Art Teachers Association. We also regularly display the work of members of the Central Print Council Aotearoa New Zealand.

There are many stories to be told of events and activities which have unfolded as the gallery has developed from its beginning in 1997 showing paintings and sculpture to ‘The Source for Fine Arts’ in the Central Districts of New Zealand. Today one can find a good cross-section of art forms, not just paintings and sculpture but also graphics, photography, art glass, ceramics, jewellery, textiles, furniture, artists’ books, turned and carved wood, crafts and Maori art.


We also provide Conservation Framing, Art Appraisals and Restoration services in Manawatu
