30 paintings from the Kelliher collection on display

Time is running out for Eastern Bay people to view one of the most impressive collections of landscape paintings to ever visit the Area.

Thirty paintings from the Kelliher collection are touring the country.

They've been on display at Te Koputu, the Whakatane Library and Exhibition Centre for more than a month.

The Kelliher Collection's curator Christopher Johnstone says people don't have much time left to view it.

He says the paintings were all entries in the annual Kelliher Art Competition which ran for 20 years from 1956.
