Mirage-like, the Little River Gallery appears on the horizon, a welcome sight for the traveller on Highway 75, the route to Akaroa, the tourists Mecca.
The sophisticated rural architecture gives a clue to the passer-by there is more than meets the casual eye here. Step inside and you’re greeted by a riot of colour, shape and texture.
An amazing range of tasteful, quality and 100% New Zealand made mementos and nostalgic keepsakes to conjure up the uniqueness of New Zealand and Maori culture. A dazzling range of over 70 jewellers will slow the pace down if not the lovely selection of books.
Deeper into the gallery the art takes a turn to more specialised media; oil on canvas, bronze, cast glass. Here you will find yourself eye to eye with original fine artwork from some of New Zealand’s pre-eminent artists.
