I visit two or three times a year and it depends what is on show. Some of the displays are excellent and some I have been in and out in two minutes.

The Ashburton Art Gallery is a lovely facility for the locals of Mid-Canterbury to visit. The current exhibition "The Water Project" provides a fascinating insight into the varied perceptions of water and it's importance to the community. Love it.
