The Melbourne Fine Art Gallery is a quiet little place tucked away in the centre of Melbourne’s business district. The art gallery has a very intimate feel (visitors have to knock to enter!) and houses a small, yet impressive set of paintings. The Melbourne Fine Art Gallery boasts an eclectic collection of traditional and modern paintings that range from the 18th century to the present. Sourced from all corners of the world, quite a number of the gallery’s paintings are rare and are highly prized among collectors. The gallery has a very peaceful ambiance, with the creative atmosphere of an artist’s studio. Once inside visitors may feel like they are in some part of Europe instead of Australia!
Specialising in artists that have been ‘lost’, forgotten or passed by, visitors will be able to unearth many artistic treasures. The site also specialises in researching artists and their paintings, so visitors can expect a wealth of information regarding the displays. The gallery is located along Bourke Street, close to the Bourke Street Mall, and is relatively easy to access. The fine art gallery keeps some pretty non-conventional hours as the director does a lot of travelling. Those interested in seeing the gallery are encouraged to call and make an appointment before they visit. However, there are more structured opening hours whenever an exhibition is held here. The Melbourne Fine Art Gallery is a ‘must visit’ for art lovers and students of art.
Melbourne is the second largest city in Australia and is probably the most culturally diverse. The city is home to numerous museums, art galleries, parks, theatres and shopping malls. It is frequently the venue of film and music festivals, and tourists will find enough and more things to occupy their time.
As one of the most widely visited cities in Australia, finding accommodation here is relatively easy. Foreigners who want the comforts of a hotel and the intimacy of a home can try Melbourne serviced apartments like Somerset on Elizabeth Melbourne. They provide luxury Melbourne furnished apartments located in the heart of the city and is ideal for both business and leisure travellers alike.
