Stunning culturally significant art from local artists
Dec 2017 • Family
This is a wonderful resource to the community holding classes and talks and art exhibitions that change seasonally. It offers up wonderful examples of the best of New Zealand art from the countries diverse cultures but strongly aligning with maori artistry and culture.
Local artists and those from further a field are combined in wonderful exhibitions that are free to view and the majority of the works are for sale (with a fantastic range of price points).
It gives you a broad perspective and feel for New Zealand contemporary artists with an emphasis on the local and maori culture.

Gorgeous gallery with lovely staff but too expensive for locals. For the well off traveller, there are some good pieces to be had.
