You know there is something special happening here from the moment you peek in the window of this beautifully restored heritage building on Kingscote's most prominent street corner.
Every piece in this fascinating white wall gallery is intrinsically connected to Kangaroo Island, either created by artists who live there, or inspired by the island itself. Resident artist Fred Peters can be found working in his studio right by the front door. Every kind of fine art media you could possibly imagine on display. My favorites include Fred's delicate sterling silver jewellery, gorgeous colored glass pieces and a stunning textile art piece by Kennita Williamson.
...then there are the kangaroos...the dancing kangaroos! You don't want to miss those.
Everything from new works by emerging artists to significant resale pieces by renowned artists including Jenny Clapson, Janine Mackintosh and Neil 'Shep' Sheppard (dec).
Whether you are a true art connoisseur or simply searching for a beautiful expression of the Island as a souvenir or a gift for friends and family overseas, you'll find something here for you.
