So, as you may know I have visited Waiheke Island outside Auckland quite a lot lately... First I was there for the Garden Safari (read more about it here), and then again for headland Sculpture on The Gulf (see all the gorgeous sculptures here).
While spending time on the island, I was stunned at how many amazing artists this little paradise had to offer, and so with the help of the local art gallery I sussed them out. Turns out there is not just one, but a few art galleries, and there is even a sculpture park! In addition, there are independent studios with artists working in oil, ceramic, watercolour, mixed media, gold, acrylic, glass and kauri wood. There is up cycled art and an island resident bespoke shoemaker! How cool is that?!
So next time you come out to Waiheke Island, don't just head out the vineyards and the beautiful beaches, take the Art Map with you and make sure to visit some of the artists too!
