Kirra Galleries May Newsletter

Narrative in Glass
Our current exhibition, Narrative in Glass was opened by Maureen Williams on 1 May 2014.  We were delighted to have some of the artists in Melbourne for the opening, Peter Nilsson, Ruth Oliphant, Christopher John and Kristin McFarlane.  The exhibition is open until Sunday 22 May 2014 so please drop in and have a look at the work – it is an incredible collection of works in glass reflecting the artists interpretation of the narrative.

If you can't get to the gallery you can download a pdf of the work on display or view the works online.

Kirra Galleries in conjunction with Fed Square will open the KIGA (Kirra Illuminating Glass Award) exhibition on Tuesday 3 June 2014 at 6.00pm.  There will be over 40 artworks in the exhibition which were selected by the judging panel from over 95 entries.  It is a non-acquisitive award and the winning entry will receive a prize of A$15,000. The winner will be announced at the opening by the Minister for the Arts, the Hon. Heidi Victoria.  The lights in the Gallery's exhibition space will be turned off and the space will be illuminated by beautiful and innovative internally lit glass sculptures - we hope you can join us for the inaugural exhibition.

Kirra Galleries has recently updated our website and we now have a facility where you can shop on line.  It is perfect if you can't make it to the gallery – just go to, where you can view work by a particular artist or if you have a budget – you can select a price category.   Payment can be made online and your purchase can be despatched to an address within the metropolitan areas of Australia within 24 hours and allow two to three days for regional areas.

We are looking forward to seeing you throughout the year. If you have any questions or would like further information on any of our pieces, please drop in or give us a call.
