The Wellington City Gallery exists as an important venue for showcasing the finest art pieces in not only the Wellington region but in the rest of New Zealand.

The gallery allows the public to experience the pieces of art in an environment where they can think and observe in peace, as well as it being a safe place to display and archive art works for future visitors.

This building and its contents stands to represent the artistic interests of the wellington public. This target audience spans far and wide; ranging anywhere from the elderly, art curators and collectors, tourists, lecturers and students to families with children.

The use of space is to be noted the Wellington City Gallery too, both inside and out. The area outside the main entrance consists of a spacious courtyard with smaller areas of lawn. The inside area utilises the space of the multiple large rooms, to best display chosen art works while the interior layout of the building allows for a flowing route for visitors between exhibits.

I personally would come back to the gallery at some point out of interest of what is on display, or even potentially for research needed for an assignment. This is because galleries are always changing the works they exhibit, so it would be interesting to see what has changed, as well as how upstairs looks, because at the time of my visit maintenance work was being done.
