Artbay Gallery

Art in Queenstown

Occupying an attractive 1863-built Freemason's Hall on the lakefront, Artbay is always an interesting place to peruse, even if you don't have $10,000 to drop on a painting. It showcases the work of contemporary NZ artists, most of whom have a connection to the region.

It's now both the oldest and newest art gallery in town, after opening an exhibition space across the road (above Louis Vuitton) in 2016, from where the lake view is as good as the art.
