Baluk Arts is a collective of Aboriginal artists local to the Mornington Peninsula, Frankston and South east Melbourne. Artworks are all locally made, handmade and come with authenticity certificates. Artworks range from works on paper, sculpture, paintings, jewellery and products such as books, cards and scarves.
As Baluk Arts are not-for-profit, all profits go back to the art centre to provide services and professional development for member artists and the local Indigenous communities.
Baluk Arts was created by a group of Aboriginal people as a way to share culture, re-learn culture and pass on culture to each other in a supportive positive environment. The artists are from diverse Aboriginal backgrounds from all over Australia and most have been impacted by the stolen generation.
As Baluk Arts grew more successful and a strong group of artists formed they opened a large communal studio space with a small gallery in the front to gather, create works and share with the public.
The Centre presents open days, workshops and tours and is open Tuesdays to Friday. For any further information please contact Baluk Arts or view their website.
