Bilk Gallery has been showcasing contemporary Glass and metal for over 18 years. Established at Workshop Bilk in 2000 the gallery moved in 2010 to its current location on Palmerston Lane in the heart of Manuka. The gallery brings together both the makers and public to create a dialogue and promote the best of young emerging artists as well as established internationally renowned artists. We aim to give a new value and concept to contemporary metal and glass and satisfy the need for an expression of individuality.


The founding director Helen Aitken-Kuhnen, along with Mio Kuhnen hold up to 9 exhibitions each year consisting of a mix of solo and group shows in glass or metal. The artists are chosen for their individuality of approach, use of materials, recognisable style and commitment to contemporary practice.
