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.

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...More

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.

I visit galleries reasonably often but this stole the show !! What a delight to see such a high quality selection of art and sculpture in the one building in a town so far off the main highways. I commend it highly to all who...More

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.
