Eurobodalla has a wonderful depth of art and craft which isn't surprising when you learn the average median age of our residents is 54.
What that means is that there is a true depth in the maturity of the art we have in our galleries and that art, that craft and the skill of the artist represents years of understanding, of travel and of taking the time to develop the skills and the eye.
We are incredibly fortunate to have such a depth of talent and we are fortunate to have a community that celebrates and supports the depth we have. Find a gallery from the list below and enjoy the artisans that live on this coast.
