Beaver Galleries is Canberra's largest privately owned commercial gallery, established in 1975 and owned and run by directors Martin and Susie Beaver since 1992. Located in a specially designed building in the inner south suburb of Deakin, the gallery reflects the national outlook of its home city exhibiting the work of both established and emerging artists from around the country. The gallery has built a national presence over many years, with a dynamic exhibition programme and regular participation in Australian art fairs, promoting exciting new work by renowned and emerging Australian artists.
Three spacious galleries, plus a dedicated print room, feature outstanding work by contemporary Australian artists in a range of disciplines including painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics and glass. Also in the gallery complex is a courtyard sculpture garden, a gallery shop with beautifully crafted products by leading Australian designer/makers, and a licensed cafe run by creative young chef David Lockwood.
The exhibition galleries, gallery shop and cafe are open Tuesday to Sunday 10am - 5pm, located at 81 Denison Street, Deakin, ACT (300 metres past the Royal Australian Mint). There is ample free parking, and buses travel to and from the city centre along Denison Street at regular intervals.
