Merricks House Art Gallery is a short meander through the garden from Merricks General Wine Store.
The gallery showcases talent from both the Mornington Peninsula region as well as artists from across Australia.
The 1920 building has been beautifully restored from many years of dereliction. Polished floor boards and open plan design provide a space ideally suited to a gallery. It has become a renowned Peninsula art destination with high profile exhibitions.
Merricks House brings art from nearby and from across the country to the Mornington Peninsula for regular exhibitions. It is an intimate space for artists and visitors.
Art Gallery and Exhibition Space - Merricks House was built in 1926 by John Joyner and his sons as a home for John’s daughter Tilly and her new husband Alf Weston. This fine old home had become run-down, but major renovations in 2013 turned it into an award-winning heritage site.
Today it provides an open, light space for exhibitions of prominent Australian artists and sculptors. The Art Gallery is open days a week between 8:30am to 5:00pm and there is no charge for entry.
