Surprise! Surprise! A 'Real' Gallery in the Country!
The Fine Art Gallery with its licensed restaurant were established in 1992 in the restored C1872 Old Post Office and Postmasters Residence. The multi-roomed gallery has grown to represent the best in Australian art.
The award winning gallery proudly presents a Seasonal Exhibition Program of five major exhibitions plus a large and continuously changing collection of traditional, modern, impressionist and contemporary works of art by noted Australian artists. Wildlife paintings and sculpture are also featured.
The centrally located, elegant, award winning restaurant offers a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy a coffee, meal or browse the gallery with a glass of local wine in hand. This majestic old building and its gardens are home to owner operators Louise Barling and Garry Broderick.
The quality of work is only surpassed by the variety offered for sale. Paintings, in all mediums, covering most subjects, are hung as if in a home and are lit by numerous chandeliers hung from the four metre ornate ceilings.
Room after room has period furniture displaying a diverse range of individual quality Australian-made craft. Art glass, pottery, woodwork, jewellery, silk, metalwork and sculpture are all on show and for sale.
The list of exhibiting artists is constantly expanding and diversifying, providing something for every budget and taste. The majority of the artists have exhibited internationally and all are multi-award winners.
The fully licensed restaurant, which has an open fire and is centrally located, encourages the visitor to sit and enjoy the wonderful ambience, view the art and craft and browse the paintings.
Only 95k's north of Melbourne, in Seymour - Victoria on the bank of the Goulburn River, the Old Post Office Seymour offers something different, if not unique, that showcases all that is truly Australian Art.
Well worth a visit!
