    Small but some great portraits. Some political and funny, some beautiful, some highly-skilled, some just plain weird. It's free, the staff are nice, pop your head in!

    Free! Impressive collection of portrait paintings... not very large but i felt the quality of exhibits made up for it. Celebrates local nz artists past and present. A must see for artists and art students. I only spent 20-30mins here.
