This small beginning flourished to such an extent that by 1897 there were 140 artists and 50 honorary members.See Otago Art Society and all Dunedin has to offer by arranging your trip with our Dunedin vacation maker app .
Otago Art Society Reviews
Situated on the second floor of railroad station. Lovely art of various mediums by local artists. Also a history of the society in hallway. Definitely worth a visit while visiting station. Open until ... more »
This is located at the Dundedin Railway sation and is much smaller than the Dunedin Public Art Gallery but still worth a look more »
A beautiful gallery within a gorgeous building. I accidentally spent an hour here simply looking around the train station and admiring the artwork. Perhaps the best part was that it is free! This place is worth a visit, even if you are not that into art (like myself).
This is a fantastic shop. It features lots of work by local artists at affordable prices. The artists themselves hang out at the shop & work the till so you can occasionally meet the person you're buying from. Really beautiful pieces to buy here. Thoroughly recommended when visiting Dunedin. Go up the stairs from the Railway Station to find it (follow the signs for the sports museum).
