The Nelson region is home to nearly 400 artists and dozens of art galleries. Allow us to select those that cater for your specific interest.
The galleries in and around Nelson clearly showcase why the city is a giant culture magnet attracting both artists and visitors in a fusion of creativity that exists all year round.
From the World of WearableArt where fashion merges with fantasy to the Red Art Gallery that caters for contemporary styles of both established and emerging artists. The world renown Hoglund Glass is a must visit on the way to Mapua and Kereru Gallery among others before exploring the numerous galleries of the Upper Moutere where one could be easily overwhelmed by the rich diversity of styles on offer and the magnificent quality of each piece.
Nelson is an idyllic and inspiring place and it will soon be obvious how this region has such a fascinating and vibrant creative spirit and celebrates being the Art centre of New Zealand and now Art Exposed turns the key and provides access into the working studios of internationally renowned artists.
Art is a very personal thing and the diversity of Art disciplines to be found range through Ceramics, Glass, Jewellery, Painting & Printmaking, Photography, Sculpture, Textiles, Woodwork, Ironwork and Furniture as well as mixed media.
There are so many galleries or accessible artists galleries, too many to mention each with their own style or niche so whatever a visitors specific interest is, it will be catered for.
A Food & Wine component can be blended with this tour.
