Simply wonderful
Feb 2020
Loved the Bread & Butter Gallery and the lady in the gallery was super helpful. We spent hours looking around as it is one of the few galleries I have visited where I wanted to buy something. Ended up buying a painting and three or four other bits. Had to leave before I went broke. Highly recommend.

A lovely gallery

Here you'll find a lot to delight - from paintings, to brooches and other jewellery, to wooden artefacts to ceramics.

Variety, worth a visit.
Nov 2018
Quite a large gallery, offering lots of local artwork. Not the cheapest, but the quality is high and justifies it. Helpful staff. Often an opportunity to meet the artists as they seem to visit frequently.

Reasonably priced modern art
Nov 2018 • Couples
I couldn't say if the art sold at Bread and Butter had a local flavour, or that it necessarily reflected the town of Whitianga - or indeed NZ. But it did seem to be of an excellent quality and not at all like the touristy stuff you see elsewhere. The gallery extends to two adjoining buildings, including several smaller rooms set aside to feature a single artist. Plenty of great quality art at reasonable prices so, if you are in the market, I recommend stopping in.

Nice gallery
Sep 2018 • Couples
Very nice gallery, truely a hidden gem.

Lots of very nice art.

Reasonable to very expensive for every taste.

Originals galore.

We always look through and drool.

Would love lots of the exhibits but we must have expensive taste.

Well worth a visit.

what a treasure
Jun 2018 • Couples
I love art, but can't usually buy. Bread and Butter had so many pieces I would love to own. Most beyond my price range, but Christine the owner was so relaxed and helpful..AND didn't come across as art snooty. She just loved what she did and what she had to sell. We did buy a piece that now I am home I love more then ever.

A Coromandel Gem...So many attractive artistic facets .
Oct 2017 • Couples
A visit to Whitianga would be all the poorer without a visit to this elegant gallery. As you enter this venue you receive a warm welcome by a friendly and attentive attendant.
A variety of artistic gifts are on display of talented Kiwi artists to meet a variety of tastes.

Art Gallery that has you coming back for more
Oct 2016 • Couples
This gallery is warm, friendly and welcoming so don't hesitate to step on in... you will be coming back for more. A wonderful collection of art. We came back three times and on each occasion found new items of interest. Marcus and Souzie Speerstra - artist, gave us wonderful snippets about the artists on show. Exquisite, inexpensive pieces of local artist jewellery too! We love the items we bought and will be back again. Keep an eye on Up coming Exhibitions.

Must see!
Oct 2016 • Solo
Absolutely fabulous little gallery. So many interesting NZ artists. Marcus and Souzie were super attentive and happy to provide information about anything we asked. My parents and I really loved our time here. I even bought my first piece of "real" art! A must visit in Whitianga.
