The Little Gallery of Fine Arts in Tairua

The Little Gallery of Fine Arts has welcomed Carolyn Milbank into their group of artists. Her work investigates the space we inhabit using the processes of installation, casting, modeling, drawing and photography. Carolyn was one of the original artists to start Dornwell Studios, but has since moved to Kuaotunu in the Coromandel.


You can also see work by Jo Dalgety and Trevor Bayly in this little but big seaside gallery.
