    Artbay Queenstown - special NZ pieces
    We've bought multiple wonderful pieces (paintings and sculptures) from ArtBay. Frances is always so friendly and helpful. The team also does a great job shipping overseas if necessary. Highly recommend them. A great experience.

    Fabulous Art Gallery with excellent service
    Dealing with Sally and Rex has been an absolute pleasure. They went over and beyond with their personalised service and professionalism. We love the art that we have in our home and their suggestions and offer to bring out the pieces for us to see in our home was amazing service. No heavy sales pitch just really nice genuine staff. Thanks

    Beautiful bronze sculpture shipped safely to Brisbane
    We visited Queenstown and really loved the whole vibe. We came across Art Bay Gallery and just lived Trevor Askin’s sculptures! Frances was simply amazing in assisting us after buying one of his beautiful pieces and amazingly, it was shipped back to Brisbane without any hiccups. We congratulate Frances and her team and couldn’t recommend the gallery more highly! Please check it out - you won’t be disappointed. Thanks Art Bay Gallery! Rob & Treen

I have visited many galleries around the world and I would have to say, in most cases they are intimidating. One of the most pleasant experiences with Artbay is you immediately feel welcome, the staff are friendly and the environment is pleasant and relaxed. The art feels accessible and there is such an incredible range of styles. Such a great location and building.

Amazing art gallery! Loved the selection of art here, they’re showcasing lots of different styles and mediums and very impressive work from some extremely talented artists! Great range to choose from.
The staff were super informative and friendly. They also have two other gallery spaces across the road with contemporary light works and a solo exhibition space upstairs. Completely free to just wander in and take your time.
Was great to see some international artists as well as all the fantastic NZ art.
Definitely well worth a visit! We went on the first Thursday of the month when the art galleries in Queenstown are open a little later in the evening and serving complimentary wine. We were so thrilled to meet Trevor Askin, bronze artist. Was a real treat.
