4 Gorgeous Brisbane Art Galleries To Visit This Weekend

Add a little culture into your weekend, why don’t you? Hit pause on your Netflix binge and venture out to our favourite galleries around Brisbane. From large-scale exhibitions, to teensy indie galleries, Brisbane has a pulsing art world that you never knew existed. Keep reading for our picks.


Fortitude Valley

TW FINE ART sits tucked away down a vine-covered lane off James Street. Blink and you really will miss this one. Pop in to catch ever changing exhibitions, or to pick the owner’s brains on where to put art in your home, how to buy art, and everything in between.


South Bank

QAGOMA is made for weekend exploring. With a delicious on-site café in the mix too, you can really make a whole day out of your trip to this stunning Brisbane art gallery. Check them out now to help celebrate their 10th birthday (spoiler: there’s a giant fury wall and a slide!), or plan your visit to coincide with their upcoming Marvel Superheroes exhibition!

Institute Of Modern Art

Fortitude Valley

Hands up if you’ve driven past the IMA a million times, but never stopped in? There are plenty of reasons to stop and check this place out, namely their often exclusive and first-to-Australia exhibitions. If you visit this weekend you’ll catch Dutch Artist Willem De Rooi’s first ever Australian exhibition!

Jan Murphy Gallery

Fortitude Valley

The Jan Murphy Gallery houses some breathtaking art, so you’d be a fool to miss this one. Exhibitions currently showing include Dog Days (art about dogs, yes please!) and other art available for purchase that is on display. But really, how can you pass up a chance to gawk at art dedicated to dogs!?

Love art? Here’s how to buy art online (that you won’t hate in six months).
