Kia ora!

My name is Molly and I’m a new member of the Ashburton Art Gallery team. 

I’ve been exploring the amazing artworks that the Gallery looks after and want to share them with you.

The lovely staff at the Gallery have let me sniff around the collection store to find my favourite artwork and I’m going to share a piece of it with you every few weeks until you’ve uncovered the artwork that I’ve chosen for you .

I will leave some clues for you to find around the Gallery and some activities to do too.

I can’t wait to show you my favourite picture.
Woof woof!

If you would like me to email you when I have a piece available, please sign up by clicking the link below
