Join the locals or take a personalized tour. Regular Saturday morning walk & Talk an art precinct Spring & Summer/Autumn
Explore art the best way, with other art lovers and an expert guide. Find the contemporary art galleries in the city. Each Walk is to a different cluster of galleries. We are introduced to the gallery, gallerist, exhibition and sometimes we are lucky to get to talk with an artist. We get all the extras of being with a person the gallerists know and respect. Sometimes we go to art auction houses and/or artist studios. Returning several weeks later we find new exhibitions and therefore new experiences. Guides are chosen for their intimate knowledge of the region’s art scene, galleries and artists. As the exhibitions are constantly changing, no Walk is the same. Returning to the precinct will always take us to different exhibitions, deepening and extending our knowledge of the art. We always find a good place for coffee and more talking.
A fabulous way to get to top dealer galleries, public art and the best of the public galleries in Wellington.
Juxtaposed perfectly with the work Mark Mary has done for the Dominion Post and currently does for The Big Idea Te Aria Nui, weekly review of the arts, the fortnightly Walk & Talk the art galleries takes us to different clusters of galleries in Wellington.
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.
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.
