Art road trip through Te Ika a Maui !

What an incredible past week this has been! I had the privilege of travelling over two thousand kilometres to visit a number of amazing art galleries in the North Island of New Zealand.Leaving my home at Baylys Beach I started the trip in the Coromandel. The Peninsula is full of amazing scenery where lots of talented artists choose to call this area their home ( I can see why!)  After the Coromandel I headed down to Tauranga and got to meet some of the cool staff at the pop up Tauranga Art Gallery . Apparently the older space will be due to reopen early next year , hopefully! Next on the art road trip was Taupo where I popped into the amazing ZeaYou Gallery. If you havent been before make sure to stop in next time you are there!  Then onto New Zealand’s coolest little coffee capital, Whanganui. There are lots of great murals to view too. Next stop was my favourite city beside the sea, New Plymouth. The White Sail Gallery is full of amazing paintings and ceramic artworks.  Finally a dip into Raglan for a surf before heading back north again. Next time you are on a wee NZ roady, make sure to keep a look out for a local  art gallery, you never know what you might find!
