The owner, Annie Wilson is an avid collector and delights in standing summer exhibitions.
"I am particularly interested in abstract work, love bronze and metal of all kinds, love the fact that most of our artists are representing the New Zealand landscape in one form or another.
I believe art should be accessible for all, and hope I have provided an unpretentious environment to facilitate that!"
