Baluk Arts is a 100 per cent Aboriginal-owned and operated not-for-profit Art Centre situated in Mornington on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. One of only two Art Centres of its kind in Victoria, Baluk Arts represents Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists who live in the South East region of Victoria.
Highly original, the work produced by Baluk artists is sourced from the unique perspectives of Aboriginal Peoples with diverse origins, histories and experiences. The iconography and use of locally-sourced materials such as ochres, native plants and animals allows the artists to explore their own art styles within the context of the Mornington Peninsula.
The Baluk artists have earned international recognition for their work. Audiences connect with the stories within the many handmade artworks and products which come in a range that includes works on paper, paintings, prints, jewellery, small sculpture, ceramics and carvings.
All income made by Baluk Arts goes directly to artists and providing services and opportunities to the community through workshops, exhibitions, promotion and employment. It offers education and experiences of the diversity of contemporary Aboriginal stories for visitors to our gallery and beyond through workshops, artist talks and other cultural programs.
