Be Inspired

Central Otago is indescribably beautiful. Dramatic untamed landscapes, wide open valleys, orchards of fruit trees and vines set against enormous blue skies, contrasting potent seasons - no wonder it inspires the creative like no other.

This place of extremes stirs the soul and, for artists, it is a perfect backdrop to explore ideas and inspire innovative design.

Discover the creative talent of the many local artists who are proud to call Central Otago home. Here you'll find painters, print makers, poets, performers, ceramic artists, sculptors, fashion designers and textile artists, jewellers, musicians, metal workers, film makers, photographers, wood workers, furniture makers and writers. 

Discover them for yourself on the Central Otago Arts Trail.

Central Otago Art Society

The Central Otago Art Society was created in 1963 when a group of art enthusiasts came together to organise the very first Alexandra Blossom Festival Art Exhibition. They are dedicated to showcasing local artists by providing them with opportunities, workshops and exhibitions. Members include professional and amateur artists, beginners and lovers of art.
