Strait Works Gallery houses a new exhibition or display every month from a wide range of artists and groups. Located in the heart of Whitemark, this small community gallery has been a focus for Flinders Island artists and craftspeople since it opened in 2006. It is managed by members of the Furneaux Community Arts group and staffed entirely by volunteers.

The Gallery has featured individuals, groups of artists, local crafts people, groups from the School, environment and community groups as well as travelling exhibitions from Artists all over Australia.

During the summer tourist season, the Gallery also operates a shop, where a wide range of original arts and crafts – paintings, photographs, cards, jewellery, knitted items, sculptures from recycled goods, and textiles – are available for sale. In 2017, over 1600 people visited the Gallery; taking in exhibitions, speaking with volunteers and  buying original pieces of art or craft.  Strait Works Gallery’s exhibition openings are advertised in the Island News and posted on the Flinders Island Community Calendar. All are welcome to attend. 

To find out more about being involved in a group exhibition or staging your own, contact Sally Walker from Furneaux Community Arts.

The Gallery requires a small fee from exhibiting artists and craftspeople to cover operating costs, and a modest commission is charged on items sold.
