Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu
Beautiful building on the other side of Hagley park, close to city centre. International class of gallery! Down the road from the museum.
This stunning building is a work of art in and of itself, with an elegant glass façade that is formed in wave-like shapes. The gallery has an extensive collection of New Zealand artworks.
The modern gallery houses many New Zealand famous artists as well as collections of foreign art.
Hosting local and international art exhibitions, the building is worth a wander about. The Gallery shop contains an eclectic selection of giftware.
