Gorgeous stuff

You'll need a second mortgage once you see all the beautiful goodies in here. My favouriate was a $23k glass sculpture.

This gallery is interesting but very limited in what it offers. There are some interesting prints worth looking at, but the rest of the art does not stand out.

Pretty glassware but no one spoke to us and you had to pay to go into the glass garden which was off putting. And they would barely allow us to watch the glassblower - which is the only thing to see there. WAste of time.

I would have purchased an item here but the lady in the store was too busy explaining the new coffee machine to a work colleague. When she did speak she was dismissive and her tone was rude and condescending. Her loss as i probably saved $1500 on a piece of beautiful glass.

What a find this shop is! Scuptures, paintings, wonderful glass & wood pieces, books & great earrings from both New Zealand & international artists.

They quickly pulled out a map of Russell and began highlighting directions to various points of interest. They took the time to give... More

Although I only looked and didn't buy, all the pieces are beautiful, think of it as an art gallery. Lovely helpful owner, a pleasure to talk to amongst some of the less friendly itinerent workers in town.

Just Imagine Gallery is a gem in the middle of the small town of Russell. The stunning glass work is stunning with both small and large pieces. There is unique sterling silver jewelry, beautifully hand dyed and stitched jackets plus unique abstract and realistic paintings from local artists.
