Restarting February 13th. Discover and explore Auckland’s different precincts of fine contemporary dealer art galleries. Each week 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.

A Jolt to the Senses:

Read Vicki Holders response to one Walk & Talk on the Ray White Community Blog: https://rwponsonby.co.nz/blog/2016/december/07/a-jolt-to-the-senses/

‘TJ’ Terry McNamara MNZM,

One of New Zealand’s most well-known and knowledgeable art commentators, having written for NZ Herald for over 50 years, is the main guide for the Auckland Saturday morning Walk & Talk an Art Precinct and currently writes a Blog: https://terrymcnamara.wordpress.com. He freely shares his extensive knowledge, with a wry sense of humour.

When TJ is not available, we are thrilled that Assoc Prof Linda Tyler, Director of the Centre for Art Studies at The University of Auckland, or past President of the Secondary School Art Teachers Association Claire Chamberlain are available to generously share their extensive knowledge.

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.
