This is a great little gallery. The art was diverse both local artists and those from bigger national exhibitions. Free entry a bonus

Nice building, friendly staff but I thought they needed to have more on display. Took us only about 20 minutes to see everything!

“Small and intimate gallery !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2015

This gallery is small and intimate but worthwhile having a look. You are able to take a photo or two but be mindful if it has a no photography sign. It has some lovely pieces for you to view and they also have carvings/sculptures outside in the front of the gallery. The heritage and culture of the Maori people is always a welcome addition to a gallery. There is also a kids area when you enter for them to draw and have some fun.
