    This gallery has amazing paintings mainly of dogs, but also some cats. All paintings give a different take on our fury friends and are very funny & clever (originals & prints are for sale on site) I just wish i could afford one.

    This gallery had quality items, not the tourist junk that is available everywhere. They feature several excellent artists working in greenstone and wood, including some creative carving I saw no where else during three weeks in NZ. The owner is knowledgeable and fair in his pricing. Don't go here if you can't tell junk from quality work.

    These two galleries (one at street level, the second, one floor up) offer a very interesting collection of modern paintings, ceramics, sculptures and multimedia objects. The collection focuses on modern New Zealand artists, and the works range from the attractive to the bizarre. Modern art is a moving target, and these galleries offer a provocative selection of works. In addition to what is on display, there is a much greater selection of works in storage that can be viewed through the gallery's catalogue. We found the attendants helpful and knowledgeable. MIlford galleries are at the end of a short alley, and within a few steps of several other leading art galleries in Queenstown.

    This is one of the most crowded art galleries I have visited. There was not an inch of free space on the walls and paintings were leaning against each other, 5-6 deep, on the floor. There is no real organization, so you have to go through the entire exhibit to find something you like. There is a broad range of styles and qualities, and the only thing they seem to have in common is that all these pieces were created by local artists.

    Queenstown enjoys a terrific setting. The city fathers built the town into the towering hills; moreover, it sits beside a lovely lake surrounded by mountains. So what's not to like? The place reeks with high adventure hype--that's what. So much so that we felt it wasn't even worth overnighting there unless we planned to go bungy jumping or skydiving. Even so, we had fun parking our camper van in a hillock area formed for the "Amon Hen" scene in "Lord of the Rings." This was near Frankton, about 7km away from Queenstown city center.

    Seeing Tim's artwork is absolutely amazing and seeing it (again) today was an incredible way to finish off our Queenstown holiday.
    I'm not usually the kind to visit galleries but Tim Wilson's artwork is just an incredible must-see and leaves you truly mesmerised by it's beauty and true liveliness.

    We were looking for one particular local artist and had done some googling, so we knew this gallery had some items we wanted to see. The website is informative.
    The gallery is rather crowded, which makes it difficult to appreciate some of the works. But the owner is helpful, moving any particular painting around for you to see it in different light.
    Good to see all the local works. Yes, we bought a painting, and yes, we will return for another look in this gallery next time we return to Queenstown.
