WELCOME TO GALLERY 54

Gallery 54 is located in historic Penola, adjoining the premium wine growing area of Coonawarra in South Australia’s Limestone Coast.
The gallery was formed in 1997 by a collective of artists of the region to promote and sell their work. Gallery 54 has become a vital element in Penola’s vibrant culture of fine art, food and wine.
