What’s on @charlotte

In addition to events and talks, the Charlotte Museum Trust holds regular exhibitions at Charlotte’s Gallery, located upstairs at our New Lynn museum. We welcome expressions of interest from lesbian artists wishing to show their work in 2019

Mosaic Workshops

Once a month we host a mosaic making workshop and welcome any and all to join us in making some art at the Charlotte Museum in New Lynn (8a Bentinck St)

Next Workshop is… Sunday 28th April with a 10am start until 4pm!



A group of works mostly from our archives, including Sharon Alston, Jill Livestra, Jorgia Sioux, Dons Savage, & others. Some of these works are from the 1970’s. 80’s and 90’s while 3 works were finished in 2019. Charlotte Muse thinks they will contribute to the definition of What is Lesbian Art?

Current Exhibitions

The current exhibitions we have at the Charlotte Museum in addition to our regular display of artefacts are:

Viv Jones’ Cartoon Exhibition

  • These cartoons were seen in Circle magazines through the seventies and eighties containing Lesbian and Gay themes.

Pop Up Museum

If you are interested in having the popup museum to visit your group or your town then let us know!

Miriam Saphira, the Trust founder, will be bringing a display of a tee-shirt quilt, badges, magazines, information banners with  2 films and a performance.

We would love it if some local groups could get in contact about us coming to visit with our pop up! Currently we’re interested in doing a pop up in the North Shore and somewhere in South Auckland. We would need a suggestion of an affordable location to hold the pop up and some help with spreading the word!

Our next pop up will be in Gisborne!  We will be at Tairāwhiti Museum, on Sunday March 31st at 2pm! We hope to see you there!


Have a look at the drop down menus by hovering over the headings for more information on some of these events as they get closer!

Feel free to get in contact and let us know what YOU want to see @charlotte! We will do our best to make it happen!
