Wanaka Fine Art Gallery
Creating beautiful spaces and beautiful homes
A boutique art gallery, upstairs on Wanaka’s lakefront. Most of the artists showcased are from Central Otago with a select few from outside the region. All artists exhibiting have a great reputation with many awards won.
Soon after returning to NZ, Lyz Dozzi was employed by the gallery for 18 months, before she and husband Peter Dozzi purchased it in 2013. Lyz is the daughter of one of Dunedin's better known arts patrons, the late Val Rollo, who championed the Dunedin Hospital fine arts collection and was chairwoman of the hospital's art advisory committee.
"With mum being an artist and art buyer, I've been raised with it. Jeffrey Harris used to stay at our family crib when he was in Wanaka. Ralph Hotere used to visit us as well in our Dunedin house. Mum had a relationship with many artists in Dunedin."
Over the past 8 years, Lyz has been tweaking the gallery's art supply to reflect the needs of the times, veering into very large feature pieces including large abstracts whilst still maintaining the landscape stable of artists
If you are looking to create special areas within your home or bring in some atmosphere do come in and visit Lyz and her team who will guide and advise you on the right paintings for you, based on your décor and the mood you are trying to create.
