About The Emporium

The Emporium is located in the small sea-side town of Opunake in the provence of Taranaki, New Zealand. The Emporium is a gallery and gift shop run by mother/daughter team Michaela and Rhonda and was born out of Rhonda's love of painting and Michaelas appreciation for creativity and her passion for representing local artists. Rhonda is self-taught artist who aims to bring light to the beauty that lay all around us that may be otherwise over-looked. Her eclectic studio is located out the back of the shop and is open for anyone to walk through.  We pride ourselves on representing local New Zealand artists and stocking high quality, unique home-ware and gifts.
