Artsdiary has two main features -

On the "EXHIBITIONS ON NOW" and "EXHIBITIONS STARTING SOON" pages we
post details of current and up-coming exhibitions in public, art school and dealer
galleries throughout the region.

"BEEN THERE" features my photographs, mainly from exhibition openings. These show artworks in context, including visitors and their interaction with the works and each other. To date, I have visited over 2500 exhibitions, and posted photographs from most of them. These photographs have developed into an invaluable archive, showing the rich diversity of the Auckland visual arts scene.

Artsdiary began in November 2010. After experiencing some difficulty arranging an "arts tour" for friends visiting from Australia, we decided to launch a "one-stop-shop" on the web to make it easy to see at a glance what's showing in galleries throughout Auckland.

Artsdiary has always been a labour of love. In our day jobs, I am an advertising photographer, and Judith is a food stylist. (Link to our work website.) We live in
Westmere with our cats Uncle Henry & Auntie Betty.

We hope you enjoy our blog, and recommend Artsdiary to others.
