Smyrnios Gallery Australia is a privately owned gallery in it's sixth year of operation. The gallery is owned and directed by Tina Smyrnios, and is the first gallery in Melbourne to have been purpose built. It is uniquely positioned in the heart of one of Melbourne's commercial areas, bordered by Greville and Chapel Streets, in St. Edmonds Road Prahran.It is the cleanest, and best lit exhibition space in Melbourne, with natural light diffusing into the gallery through a number of vertical and horizontal slits.Gallery policy offers exhibition space to a number of young emerging artists as well as those in mid-career, with occasional "guest" curators.Exhibitions encompass a wide range of contemporary Australian art across most media, including painting, photography, sculpture, drawing, and prints.A dual exhibition area allows the gallery to display the work of two artists at any one time. New exhibitions are mounted every four weeks, and a stock room allows viewing of works between exhibitions. The gallery also has an outdoor sculpture courtyard.
