Welcome to the Forrester Gallery
The Forrester Gallery is housed in a spectacular neo-classical building originally constructed in 1884 for the Bank of New South Wales. The site was acquired by the former Oamaru Borough Council and opened as a gallery in 1983 with the help of a substantial legacy from John M. Forrester (1865 -1965).
The protagonist of Marian Maguire’s new print series is an impressive figure of nineteenth-century Taranaki.
