art@wintergarden is a working studio gallery, situated in Geelong, where you will find art works of excellence including landscapes, still life, portraiture and sculptures.
art@wintergarden hosts an exciting rotation of exhibitions, traditional and contemporary and operates an active studio space where small painting classes and workshops are regularly held.
Artist/Proprietor Jill Shalless, founder of "Dabble 'n' Daub" moved into "The Wintergarden" in late 2004.
The Wintergarden is an historic landmark in Geelong housing a variety of businesses. These include:
- Leaf and Stone Garden Gallery
- Briar Patch Gift Shop
- Wintergarden Cafe
- Linear Studio (renovations and townplanning)
In 2006 "Dabble 'n' Daub" expanded to the mezzanine floor with the combined efforts of two resident artists, Faye Owen and Lianne Gough.
In 2009 with the evolution of the business and the inherent influence of the beautiful building we are located in, the business took on the new name art@wintergarden and has continued to flourish. Our emphasis is focused on the world class local art community.
2011 saw art@wintergarden win the Best Micro Business Award in the Geelong Advertiser Business Excellence Awards.
2012 introduced Chantelle Hodgson to the team as Gallery Assistant. She brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to art@wintergarden featuring her annual curation of the Sculpture Exhibition in September.
2014 art@wintergarden celebrated 10 years of business in The Wintergarden building with our August exhibition ‘Ten 4 Ten’ featuring ten of the galleries most exhibited artists.
Jill Shalless operates a must visit business in the Wintergarden building on McKillop St. Jill speaks to us about her passion for the arts in Geelong and how the community of businesses has been the key to her success in the Wintergarden.
