A fearsome predator…or simply lost? A larger-than-life polar bear is the proud guardian of the appropriately named Lost Bear Gallery. Is he searching for a colder climate? Has global warming taken its toll? What inspired acclaimed artist Ian Swift to create this arresting sculpture? Regardless, waiting inside is a gallery experience in which the inherent beauty of the building’s architecture is matched only by the high calibre of works on display.
 The gallery exudes the charm of a bygone era. Polished kauri floorboards, Art Nouveau leadlight windows, ten-foot ceilings, wide architraves and old fireplaces are just some of the architectural features you’ll discover. Twelve unique exhibition spaces, together with an outdoor sculpture garden, are home to an extensive art collection. But perhaps of most surprise is the way an eclectic mix of quality contemporary fine art has been seamlessly curated within this elegantly refurbished property.
