Come and see some of Melbourne's best in original and accessible art. Small, unframed originals are available and are an excellent and unique choice of art for travellers and visitors. Custom made Giclee reproductions on canvas are also available.

You may even be able to book into a casual three hour introductory painting workshop and undertake your own painting with all materials provided. Please see the website for more information about studio activities.

If you are interested in purchasing contemporary abstract, expressionist or figurative paintings, even unique outdoor paintings, art works of Melbourne, from the represented artists feel free to browse online or drop by during the gallery viewing times. Alternatively, private viewings of your selection at the gallery, in your home or business can be booked, for inner metropolitan Melbourne, by phone or email .

As well as fresh sea air plus ocean and city views, you can spend an entire day down the cultural end of Bay Street and not run out of things to do and see. Melbourne's blue bikes have a couple of stations very close by if you feel like biking it.
