Weekly, Saturday

Join the 2022 Summer/Autumn Season:

As Covid allows.

Discover and explore Auckland’s different precincts of fine contemporary dealer art galleries. Join the group of excited art lovers to discover a different cluster of galleries. With ever changing exhibitions of emerging, mid-career and established artists we are thrilled to discover new artistic expressions. 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 to new exhibitions and new fabulous experiences.

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.
