There is nothing quite like a striking, unique piece of art to light up a room and transform a space from bland to ‘wow’. It’s easy to find art prints or conventional pieces and these can work brilliantly when styling your home for sale. We always recommend employing the services of a stylist who can select pieces to present your home for sale in its best possible light.
On occasion, our clients want to select something a little more exclusive and truly special. This can take a little more time and energy – but it is always worth it. To narrow down the pursuit, we’ve compiled a short list of some of Melbourne’s most popular boutique art galleries that frequently showcase both local and international artists, that will take your breath away.
This contemporary gallery located in the heart of Armadale has cemented a reputation of high regard for its constant evolution and fluidity. On renowned High Street, nestled amid a group of many excellent boutique galleries, Metro Gallery exhibits collectable pieces from Australian and international emerging artists. Metro Gallery prides itself on featuring innovative artists that work across a range of mediums. The gallery also assists with hanging work, art evaluation, and art investment.
Representing significant Australian artists, key Chinese artists and Australia’s most promising emerging artists, ARC ONE was established in 2001 and remains devoted to Australian contemporary art. This impressive inner-city Melbourne gallery has presented a number of brilliant solo exhibitions and vibrant group shows, as well as representing major public commissions and installations.
The quirky building itself is a work of art. This seasoned institution has established a well-deserved repute since its inception in 1978. Niagara is a leading contemporary gallery and represents over forty-five artists from around the world. Featuring an array of media, such as sculpture, photography, ceramics, print and more, this iconic gallery is open by appointment only, located on the fringe of Richmond’s West.
