Art Galleries In and Around Margaret River
Whether your favourite type of art is natural landscapes, wildlife, nautical, glass wares, jewellery, native artifacts, wildflowers, tapestries, ceramics, one of a kind custom made furniture, or traditional paintings, there is an art gallery in Margaret River that will fit your style. Some of our popular artists work in small studios and will occasionally just pop up in parks or on one the main streets with their latest works of art.
With all of the outstanding local artists, in so many different fields of expertise, we are hard pressed to choose the very best. But, it is with local pride that we recommend the following artists and their galleries.
Glenellie Art Studio and Phil O’brien (Margaret River)
Phil O’Brien is a local artist who has studied his contemporary style of oil painting, using bold colours, in Europe and the Middle East. His canvases reflect his love of the Western Australian landscapes, diverse weather conditions, and the oceans. He works in his gallery (actually an artist shed), and adds a piece of his inner soul into each piece. He is the sole artist and totally enjoys greeting and chatting with each visitor. You can see some of his recent paintings on his website at https://margaretriverartisans.com.au/artisan/glenellie-art-studio/.
The gallery is open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 AM to 4PM. However, he also invites visitors to stop by at other times. To arrange a suitable time, call him on (08) 9757 4241.
