“Stunning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

Don't miss this attraction: the building itself is the star! (But the art is pretty good too!) This was a real highlight of my visit to Oamaru

“Truly enchanting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

Follow a sign on the street and enter an airy hideaway filled to the rafters with a range of romantic and surreal art. MUST SEE! Worth climbing the flights of stairs, trust me. Items range from $5 to $5000. I'll be back to buy some art.

“So Many Faces”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

This is a gem of an odd gallery, with faces everywhere. always fun and welcoming. We were allowed to wear some papier mache bird heads and it was like dropping into a friend's house while they are having a party.

“Checking out Donna Dementhe's work”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2013

Three lots of stairs to get to the top. Some very interesting work by Donna Dementhe and other artists. I liked the subjects with different eyes. Different!
