►AMG Frequently Asked Questions

Do you courier works within New Zealand?

Yes*, at the customers expense. Fastways are our preferred courier company. Contact us to get a quote.
*Please note occasionally we will not post a work due to the fragility, or will advise against it.


Can you ship works overseas?

Yes*, at the customers expense, (although they are more commonly transported via aeroplane than boat). We usually do this through Pack n Send, and are able to provide you with insured & non-insured shipping quotes.
*See above.


What payment methods do you accept?

Visa, Mastercard, Eftpos, & Cash payments available in-store. For over the phone/online sales, funds are payable via Internet Banking.


Can I put an item on hold?

Yes, we are happy to hold an item for you, up to 2 working days.


Do I need to pay for the work immediately?

Unless discussed prior, we require payment in full for works at time of sale. We do, however, offer a complementary 2 month layby service with only 10% deposit required. Contact us for more information.


Do you take commission requests?

Personally, no, unless you’re after stick figures. However, many of our artists will, at their discretion. Contact us to get the process started.


Are you taking on new artists?

Whilst are books are very full, we do occasionally take on new artists if the work is something we are after/different from what we have. The best way to get in touch with us if your’re looking for representation is to email us and include images/ a portfolio of your recent works.


Do you rent out your studio/exhibition space to artists who aren’t affiliated with the gallery?

Unfortunately, this is not something we offer at this point of time.


What’s up with the AMG abbreviation?

I get sick of writing Art Matakana Gallery constantly - Bayley.
