MERRICKS HOUSE ART GALLERY

SHOWCASING LOCAL & AUSTRALIAN ARTISTS

Merricks House brings art from nearby and from across the country to the Mornington Peninsula for regular exhibitions. It is an intimate space for artists and visitors.

ART GALLERY & EXHIBITION SPACE

Merricks House was built in 1926 by John Joyner and his sons as a home for John’s daughter Tilly and her new husband Alf Weston. This fine old home had become run-down, but major renovations in 2013 turned it into an award-winning heritage site.

Today it provides an open, light space for exhibitions of prominent Australian artists and sculptors. The Art Gallery is open 7 days a week between 8:30am to 5:00pm and there is no charge for entry.

the company of others …

30th October - 22nd November

What has happened in this world, and particularly in this part of the world, has made obvious to me the unnaturalness of being alone. The association of association of like minded people is intrinsic to our mental and spiritual health. Love, compassion and empathy are best fostered in and with the company of friends and family. To this end I make an offering of this exhibition to remind us to come together and relish our connection with others.
