Tour Reviews


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

We had a lovely tour by Jennifer, met 3 artists, Inge Doesburg, Peter Cleverley from Oamaru and John Z Robinson. There was a spare 5 minutes at the end of the tour so Jennifer had the inspired idea to take us to the foyer of the Railway Station, which was the scene of one of the portraits at DPAG where the artist is barely visible walking quickly across to the platform.

Walk & Talk an Auckland Art Precinct (weekly Saturday)

Art Explore make art both accessible and enjoyable for an novice like me. Great to hear entertaining behind-the-scenes stories and to get access to the hidden vaults of Auckland’s thriving arts community. Highly recommended for a great morning out. Great way to meet other enthusiasts.
