Dunedin Walk & Talk the Dunedin's Art Precincts 2nd & 4th Saturdays

What a treat! Expert commentary from Jennifer Hopkinson, on a variety of artworks, made this a thoroughly enjoyable, informative and accessible way to experience the showcased art. Having two of the featured artists in gallery to share their exhibitions in person was the icing on the cake. Thank you to Jennifer, Catherine and Art Explore. I’d recommend your tour as worthwhile for anyone with any interest in art, whether they be expert or novice. Thanks for a very enjoyable time. I’ll be coming again.
