As a foreign tour guide who brings groups of tourists to visit New Zealand, I like to stop in Oamaru for its unique buildings and its passionate people who keep the singular, quirky, authentic stores and galleries open.
The Home Gallery is one of them, a work of love (for we know art isn’t the most comercial of businesses), and one of the reasons for stopping in Oamaru.
And for us, as visitors, the building is almost as important as the art exhibited in it. I find it hard to imagine one without the other. I really hope there is a viable solution to keep the Home Gallery open where it is.
