You still have a few weeks to see this stunning exhibition – we will be turning the lights off at the close of business on Sunday 13 July 2014 and we hope you can visit the Gallery to enjoy the work, and also take the opportunity to visit Federation Square and see the incredible interactive light installation by UK architect, Asif Khan, located at the front of the Square.

Kirra Galleries Website
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.
