IN BLACK + WHITE the power of monochrome in Aboriginal art

We'd hoped to be launching this exhibition of stunning black and white paintings and works on paper in the gallery as well as online. However circumstances have sadly dictated otherwise. While health is our absolute priority and we fully support the need for widespread business closures and other restrictions, we also have a great commitment to bring you the culturally-rich and joyous Aboriginal art from the many communities and artists we represent. 

Merricks General Wine Store

Back in the days before impersonal supermarkets and oversized shopping centres, the humble general store was a community hub, a place that served an important social, as well as supply, service. General stores were once prolific in towns across the Peninsula region, stocking everything from kerosene and toothpaste to fresh bread and milk, run by owners who knew many of the customers by name. In 1924, Merricks General Wine Store opened to serve a variety of needs of the local community.
