About Us

Art on Piper gallery is a not-for-profit art collective in Piper St Kyneton.  Based in the centre of the touristy art hub, visitors enjoy the gallery amid award winning restaurants as a destination experience. This pretty Central Victorian town is a one hour drive (90km) from the Melbourne CBD.

The warmly inviting building was built in the gold rush era of the 1850’s.  It offers a mix of handmade local brick walls (with a transom doorway evident from the previous carriage works access to next door) and fresh, crisp white wall backdrops to enhance the various styles of art on display. 

MEET THE TEAM

The gallery consists of a dynamic group of members showcasing a diverse range of creations.  From lifetime art and design professionals to mid-career and emerging artists.  Some have been teachers, and now retired, can focus on their own explorations.

While on duty on a monthly basis, each artist is usually working in their medium.  They are happy to chat about how they create their works.  You can even discuss customising a commission.  To achieve a specific size or composition with significant details, you only have to ask.

Artists change their display contents when on duty, as new works are finished, or for a seasonal feel, so regular visitors find surprises each time.  They contribute to the themed front window displays.  Also the Macedon Ranges themed area, as well as the Guest Room on occasion.

We currently have space for a few more artists to expand our offerings.  Cards, textiles and jewellery are at the desired capacity for the gallery, as we prefer a broad experience for our visitors.  Further info is on our Membership page.

 GUEST ARTISTS

The Guest Room is an intimate zone for visitors to explore the motivations of artists in addition to our members, with a different atmosphere to the rest of the building.  The space is a comfortable size for first-time exhibitors and many artists have learned from their ‘toe in the water’ exhibition.  You can see how they interpreted the zone here.

The Art on Piper gallery is open 6 days per week from 10am-4pm, closed on Tuesdays most of the year.  Open 7 days over Summer, from November until the end of February.
