At The Design Gallery we have a passion for art and its role in helping us achieve a sense of well being in our environment. Art can engage, challenge, bemuse or just look great on the wall.

We exhibit selected works and have Exhibition Openings, with drinks & canapés, for our members and guests. The Gallery is open by appointment or by chance. We are here  at most times but suggest phoning Gael 0414 449930 to avoid disappointment.
