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.

This is a great place to look for local art and New Zealand-themed gifts. Much nicer offerings than souvenir shops. The prices are higher but the quality is high as well.

This is a beautiful gallery full of many local artists works. We were lucky enough to have Michael Smithers there the day we visited. They have a broad range of items and I am sure you will find something you love and must take home.
