Exhibiting and selling art/craft at Bulleen Art & Garden

We are always looking out for new artists and want to display work which is original and individual, and is a viable alternative option for our customers, rather than mass produced items. Works could be suitable for display in the garden or have some connection to the garden. Work for sale should be of professional quality and suitable for its purpose, and should have artistic or design merit.

Sales in the Sculpture Garden, garden Gallery, nursery or shop

We make an effort to include local art and craft throughout the centre as well as exhibitions in our gallery space – in the  Garden Gallery with ongoing displays of garden art; in the shop area near the gallery; in outdoor sculpture garden , and as features in displays in the nursery areas, such as plant bench endcaps.

For more information, Please email or mail to Meredith Plain, Bulleen Art & Garden, 6 Manningham Rd W, Bulleen.

Or phone Joe Raneri or Meredith 8850 3030 on weekdays.

Commission sales: approx one third selling price.


A gallery as part of a garden centre is a great way to bring art, and individually crafted products to a wide range of people who would not normally visit an art gallery, as well as giving local artists an outlet for their products. We have held regular exhibitions, usually 8 or 9 since 1995 when we opened our first art gallery. Then in August 2015 we opened a new gallery.

We are keen to feature a program of interesting and diverse quality exhibitions by local artists with a range of media and styles. We want to have variation during the year, and also from year to year.

Garden art and 3d work are often popular. Media have included – ceramic and metal sculpture, other ceramics, mosaics, glass, textiles, paper, painting, photography.

The Gallery

Bolin Bolin Gallery is in the centre of the Bulleen Art & Garden shop, designated by a sculptural sign by Nicola Hoyle. The area is 6.8m X 4.3m.

It has:

  • Gallery hanging system
  • we have quite a lot of  plinths
  • several wall shelves

  • Take part in a group exhibition
