Donna Demente's artistic talent is amazing and visiting her gallery is such fun. There is a selection of gifts for all pockets and I bought a brilliant poster which I shall frame and hang when I get back to the UK. Would definitely recommend a visit .... loved it.

Donna is a graduate of Elam School of Fine Arts . I loved my visit to this quirky & intriguing gallery. She was there the day I visited & I had a great chat to her. Definitely a highlight of my stay in Oamaru.

easy to spend money here as there are some excellent items to view, open hours were convenient other shops in the immediate area are worth a look too

Something for everyone and resident artists to chat to, some find the gallery a little hard to find, just head to Harbour street and the doorway is next to Birdlands wine bar - up the stairs!

Really enjoy heading up the stairs and seeing what treasures there are in Donna's gallery. Can spend an hour in here looking at all the amazing art work and things for sale. Always something that takes my eye and a good range of prices.

The trip up the stairs is well worth it, a gallery full of quirky and interesting art from the district and more as well as Donna's own work. Great browsing.
