Wellington has several concentrations of fine contemporary dealer galleries, with ever changing exhibitions of emerging, mid-career and established artists. Each fortnight we walk a different cluster of galleries. We are introduced to the gallery, gallerist, the exhibition and sometimes we are lucky to get to talk with an artist. We get all the extras of being with a guide the gallerists know and respect. Returning several weeks later we find new exhibitions and therefore new experiences. Our guide is Mark Amery or Mary-Jane Duffy. Being an ArtExplore guide is juxtaposed perfectly with the work Mark has done for the Dominion Post reviewing latest exhibitions in Wellington’s dealer galleries and currently reviews for The Big Idea - Te Aria Nui.Mary-Jane ran her own gallery in Wellington for many years. She has written and published extensively on the arts. Mary-Jane has recently returned to Wellington and among other things is taking a creative writing course. Both Mark and Mary Jane bring a special interest in public, community and street art to these gallery walks. As the exhibitions are constantly changing, no walk is the same. Repeat the Walks and you will 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.
