"St Kilda can be described in three words – creative, diverse and eclectic. Artist's Studio 106 on Barkly street stays true to these very words and is nothing short of inspirational."





Open by appointment


Diversions and other Detours: Artist's Studio 106 Group Exhibition was recently held, showcasing works in response to Covid19 and the lockdown. Many works sold and the exhibition was considered a great success. 

Artist's Studio 106 gratefully acknowledges the receipt of a Neighbourhood Programs Committee Grant from the City of Port Phillip to contribute towards the mounting of 'Chronicle 106: Louise Chen and Studio 106 Artists' group art exhibition.

Artist’s Studio 106 is an independently run artist's collective, established in the mid 1990's and consisting of working artist studios and a gallery space. It is home to over 20 resident artists, filmmakers and writers hailing from diverse cultural backgrounds and working across a multitude of mediums - including illustration, sculpture, painting, digital art, mixed media, poetry and fi­­lm.


The studio gallery space is available for hire to other local artists for exhibtions and workshops. Please feel free to make an enquiry. 


Artists regularly mount group and solo exhibitions and participate in community events, such as the St Kilda Art Crawl. Please keep an eye on our Facbeook page for the latest information regarding dates, exhibitions and upcoming events.
