This gallery has stunning examples of New Zealand art (Len Lye, Ralph Hotare, Rita Angus) and well as examples of non-western art collected by the Gallery’s benefactor.

Free entry. An outstanding collection that you would not imagine could be in a town the size of Gore.

What a beautiful building this gallery is housed in - just delightful and I believe recently re-decorated. Originally this building was the library which was partially funded by Andrew Carnegie . The Jim Cooper exhibition that was on at the time was just amazing! This is a must if you are in the area - even just to see the building!

The Eastern Southland Gallery is located the old library building. There is a collection of New Zealand art and a nice collection of African masks, sculptures and folk art all collected by a man named John Money.

Giften an outstanding collection by Dr J Money. Ranging from paintings by Rita Angus and Ralph Hotere along with indigenous art from around the world.this is the most ecelctic gallery I have ever been in. Having been here before I was truly looking forward to this visit. Unfortunately a few minutes after we arrived it was invaded by a coachload of people who were very noisy. This spoiled the whole ambience .... very disappointed

What a wonderful find in this town. So unexpected. We had heard of the John Money collection he bequeathed to Gore but we were thrilled to see the collections of Hotere and Marilynn Webb. The Rita Angus collection was amazing. All in all a wonderful free experience. Well done Gore.
