Discover Dunedin’s fabulous visual arts. Always changing. Always evolving. Along with the literary art and music scene, Dunedin has developed a great fine visual arts sector. There is a significant collection of fine art galleries, ever changing exhibitions of emerging, mid-career and established artists, reflecting the creativity found in the Southern climes.
Second and fourth Saturdays the Dunedin Walk and Talk an Art Precinct is a guided gallery walking tours, each to a totally different cluster of galleries. We are introduced to the gallery, gallerist, the exhibition and sometime we are lucky to get to talk with an artist. We get all the extras of being with a person the gallerists know and respect. As the exhibitions are constantly changing, no walk is the same. Repeat the Walks and you will find new exhibitions and always have a most interesting and informed experience, deepening and extending your knowledge of the art in the exhibitions. We always find a good place for coffee and more talking We always find a good place for coffee and more talking.
Our guide is either James Dignan or Jennifer Hopkinson. James is well known as a long time contributor to the ODT (Otago Daily Times) Art Seen Column. Jennifer was the major gallerist of Moray Gallery until a short few years ago. Both bring a depth of knowledge, especially of the local art scene.
