Next door to Hastings library in Civic Square is the art gallery. Te Whare Toi O Heretaunga – Hastings City Art Gallery. Sadly I didn’t have time to explore inside the gallery. Next time I’m in the city I plan to explore the exhibitions. On first impressions I wasn’t going to photograph this building. The colourful tiles in the square in front of the building drew me to the gallery. It’s a shame that the paint seems to be a little faded or weathered. That may be intentional. On the day I was there it was very quiet in the square and I only saw a couple of other people.
