FLG’s priority is to protect and safeguard our visitors and staff and as such we are taking the precautionary measure to close the physical Gallery from Tuesday 17 March to support wider efforts to contain COVID–19 in our community.
We are still working full-time from home and still contactable via email, and phone. Appointments to view an artwork via a video call can be made via email firstname.lastname@example.org. We can also hang the artwork that you want to view in the front window of the gallery for you to view without having to come into contact with anyone. Our exhibitions are still running and are viewable on our website. If you are interested in an artwork we can provide further images and videos of the work.
We will provide updates regarding our return to operations (including future exhibitions and programs) via our website, e-communications and through social media channels over the coming weeks as the situation evolves and in response to Government advice.
Remember this too will pass. In the meantime, look out for those less fortunate and call to check on your friends and neighbours who may need some help, even if it’s just a roll of loo paper. Stay safe & be thoughtful – we are all in this together. Claire, Taryn, Phe & Bridie

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.
