About

Established in 1968, Manyung Gallery Group is well known for being one of Melbourne’s largest and longest running contemporary art spaces.

With three galleries in Mount Eliza, Sorrento and Malvern, Manyung Gallery is directed by Sharyn and David Wemyss-Smith who pride themselves on showcasing contemporary and traditional works of art by established and emerging visual artists sourced across Australia. The gallery's selection includes original oil, acrylic and water-colour paintings as well as fine art prints, sterling silver jewellery, glass, ceramic, steel, bronze, wood and mixed media sculpture and photography.

Each gallery showcases monthly exhibitions of new works, which are supported by artist talks, workshops, and other events that engage the wider community.
