Adding to the existing collection of galleries and homewares stores in Parnell – Birdwoods offers a refreshingly different mix of sculpture, jewellery, photographic canvasses, art pieces and basketry with an African vibe.

Despite some major setbacks with Covid, lockdowns, container delays, lack of tourists, Jack Stobart has had the guts and tenacity to forge ahead and open. This is Jack’s second gallery - he opened Birdwoods Arrowtown in February 2020 so is already well-versed in dealing with the challenges of a pandemic.

Jack is an emerging New Zealand sculptor and now that he has opened both galleries, it will give him more time to do what he loves doing and that is sculpt from his home base in Arrowtown, so watch the gallery space as it starts to fill with his own work.

Birdwoods Gallery is now open at 177 Parnell Road – just opposite the International Arts Centre and down from the gorgeous Black Door Gallery and Parnell Gallery.
