The Tauranga Art Gallery is usually what brings me into the city centre. I’ve seen some great photo exhibitions as well as work by artists of many different styles- Jim Cooper and Colin McCahon being 2 of my favorite NZ artsists to have had work here. There’s been international artists too though!

When I was there yesterday I was struck by the contrast of the multimillion dollar building and the carpark just up the road.

I actually like the character of the old buildings at the back of the carpark better than the modern lines of the art gallery. That said I definately enjoy what I’ve seen on the inside!
