JAB Gallery features the works of artist John Burns If you are wanting to visit a gallery showing photo perfect landscapes or flowers in a vase, this is definitely not the place for you. Avoid it like the plague ….however … if you are still here, I’ll carry on … the artwork is sometimes not pretty, a bit edgy and can be challenging, humorous, even enlightening but/and its definitely different. It may give you a divergent perspective of the weird minds of some people. Yes, they are out there amongst us, pretending to be normal. We (family and me) are definitely on the fringes of hillbillies. We drive old trucks, use coal for heating and cooking, eat lots of hunted meat and sit around bonfires most Saturday nights. We don’t, however, have a banjo. We are open most days, but not always. You may wish to phone first. Please note: don’t get especially dressed up if you come to visit–we won’t be.

State Highway 73 • 20 minutes drive from Arthur’s Pass • 1 hour from Hokitika or/and Greymouth

Nimmo Gallery & Store

Authentic West Coast pounamu/jade found by my family and me in local rivers and mountains. My family connections with pounamu (jade) go back hundreds of years to the Maori tribes Ngati Mahaki and Ngati Waewae who were the original traders of pounamu on the West Coast of New Zealand. I am privileged to be one of few who have customary rights to gather the jade. Each piece is carved by me personally. I have personally carved all the jewellery and sculptures in my studio and each design has its own story. You’ll be able to watch me carve and handle some of the best jade rocks that my whanau (family) and I have found over the years. Come and meet me in my studio! So if you are looking for a special piece of jade, come and see me in my studio. Its easy to find on the road to Shantytown. I look forward to meeting you soon!
