2019 was a big year for FLG, relocating from its original premises at 137 Flinders Lane and into Melbourne's iconic Nicholas Building.
This video below documents the process, from working with the architects to moving over 200 artworks into a new gallery space.
FLG takes great pleasure in helping you source artworks that you will treasure for a lifetime. We know you lead a busy life and are here to make sure you have an enjoyable and streamlined experience. With a broad range of contemporary artworks in our stockroom, we offer both layby and Artmoney payment options to ensure acquiring an artwork is a stress free decision.
We look forward to finding the perfect artworks for you.
Claire Harris has over 25 years’ experience in the arts and values her role in sourcing artworks that are the right fit for your home, business and lifestyle.
FLG is a contemporary art gallery in the heart of Melbourne, located on Level 1 of the Nicholas Building at the corner of Flinders Lane and Swanston Street. The gallery has been championing the practices of emerging, mid-career and established Australian artists since its inception in 1989. The FLG stable is unified by a commitment to presenting high quality, exceptional artworks that demonstrate conceptual rigour, technical expertise and creative sensitivity. The breadth of practice by FLG artists incorporates digital media and large scale multi-media installation, as well as more traditional modes of creative representation.
Complementing its comprehensive year-long program of solo exhibitions, the gallery also produces critical catalogue essays and publications to supplement the works produced by each of its featured artists. FLG works closely with institutions, businesses, architects and curators to place artists’ works within major collections, secure public art commissions and to ensure their artists are reflected within the broader cultural landscape of awards and curated exhibitions.
With Director Claire Harris at the helm since 2006, FLG is committed to presenting its artists in a professional & enlightening manner, nurturing the passions of both new and seasoned art buyers alike.
FLG would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation who are the traditional custodians of the land on which FLG stands.
We would also like to pay respect to the Wurundjeri Elders, past and present, and extend this respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait people from other communities who live here today.
FLG is signatory to the Indigenous Art Code.
