We have a loyal following of customers locally, nationally and internationally and we absolutely love sourcing the perfect piece of art for our customers.

Our onsite framing workshop is one of Dunedin's busiest and most popular framing hubs we have a great reputation for providing a creative and competitively priced framing service to the public and also frame all the artworks hanging in the gallery.
We are a friendly, knowledgeable and approachable team, and this has helped to create a welcoming environment at Gallery De Novo. Since opening its doors, the gallery continues to be open 7 days a week Monday - Friday 9:30 - 5:30 and Saturday & Sunday 10:00 - 3:00pm
Gallery De Novo was established in 2005, the product of many years of planning for owners Richelle Byers and Liz Fraser. Both Richelle and Liz gained degrees in Art History and went on to work extensively in galleries both locally and Internationally. After many years overseas they returned to live in Dunedin to raise their families. The strength of the thriving Otago art scene made them recognise the need for a gallery with a fresh, passionate and honest approach to art.
Gallery De Novo has grown into one of Dunedin's leading galleries with an exciting and eclectic mix of talented New Zealand contemporary artists.
