North East Artisans is a community art space in the heart of Benalla at 122 Bridge Street.
NEA provides a gallery shop space for the artisans of North East Victoria to display their stunning creations; an opportunity for the community to shop locally; studio space for artisans; an array of special exhibitions throughout the year; regular gallery gigs; various art and craft workshops; and space for community groups to meet.
We encourage visitors to NEA to come in and enjoy the space, browse the art, relax and chat to the artisans and to get involved in special events and activities.
Our GALLERY SHOP opening hours are subject to volunteer availability. The shop is open Tuesday to Friday 10am-4pm & Sat 10am-2pm. We open on Sundays and Mondays for special events. For visiting groups, gallery shop/NEA tours may be arranged by appointment.
The RED ROAD CAFE at NEA is open from 9am to 4pm Tuesday to Friday and 9am to 2pm Saturday (closed Sunday). Whilst the cafe is open, visitors may still have access to open studios and the exhibition space. If the gallery shop is closed, the friendly cafe staff may be able to assist you with any enquiries.
The EXHIBITION GALLERY is open during NEA opening hours however may be unavailable if a new exhibition is being installed.
STUDIOS are open during NEA opening hours.. Artists may at times be found at work in their studios and are happy to chat to visitors.
Workshops at North East Artisans are offered throughout the year by local artisans who are either exhibiting in the NEA Gallery or are involved in NEA in other ways. To book into or discuss an advertised workshop, please contact the artisan directly. If you are unable to contact the artist, please contact our workshops coordinator Anne Longmuir via email firstname.lastname@example.org or via our facebook/website. If you are an artisan who wishes to offer a workshop at NEA, please organise this with Anne.
Our core values include people, art, community, connectedness, sustainability, transparency, quality and inclusiveness.
All are welcome at NEA!
