Hairy Maclary at the Art Gallery

The art gallery here in Tauranga has a great exhibition on at the moment "Lynley Dodd- A Retrospective" so we took the girls along in the weekend to see it.   Lynley Dodd's books are very popular in our house so it was really neat to see some of her original drawings and drafts of her stories. They even had a couple of ipads there with the Hairy MacLary app which the kids were loving. (How cool are ipads??!!)
Lynley Dodd actually lives here in Tauranga and she's going to be at the Art Gallery on Sunday 10th April to sign copies of her books... http://www.artgallery.org.nz/events/lynley-dodd-book-signing-session

And have you seen this cute Hairy Maclary cross stitch kit?  There are kits with all the characters on this site here.

I think I have decided what me and Mr 6 are going to do tomorrow - can you recall if there is a cost to visit the exhibition?
