Hi I'm Kate Symmans - Branch Manager


Having completed a Diploma in Visual Art in my home town of Wellington, I moved to Hamilton to pursue a Degree in Media Arts majoring in Painting and Sculpture. Not satisfied with just the degree, I graduated with Honours in 2012 where I gained employment at Gordon Harris and have been the store manager here for the past year. Predominantly a water-colourist and oil painter I enjoy all aspects of creativity. I have exhibited in group shows over the years and enjoy keeping in touch with our arts community by attending local exhibitions and arts events regularly.

Our team here at Gordon Harris Hamilton are all practising in some artistic field so I am confident that we can provide you with great knowledge of our products to suit your art practice. There is an excellent range of quality art and design products here that will suit beginners through to professional artists. There is also a great selection of books to get you inspired.

We are located on Anglesea Street and at the end of beautiful Casabella Lane. We have two parking spaces at the front of our store reserved for our customers should you need them.

Gordon Harris hosts Demo Nights in store where you can enjoy wine, nibbles and expert advice on different artist's materials and techniques. We have regular sales so you can make great savings on quality products. Sign up to our mailing list in store to be in the know. We also offer a student and tutor discount.


We look forward to seeing you in store soon.




Kate and the team.
