Christina Dunning

Personalised visual arts tour Dunedin

Janes arranged an inspiring Dunedin private tour for me. We visited Dunedin’s Art Gallery plus several art galleries giving me a front of house and behind the scenes view of the Dunedin art scene. James arranged for me to meet one of Dunedin’s renowned local artists in his studio wgmhi h had to be a highlight. The second phase of the tour concentrated on Dunedin’s street art which was amazing and that much more interesting due to the knowledge James shared with me. Thank you for the day James .
