About Artworx Gallery
Artworx Gallery & Gifts opened in October 2005 in the historic river port of Goolwa, 80 kilometres south of South Australia's capital city of Adelaide. Within months of opening, it had established itself as a must-see venue and within a year was being hailed as the finest contemporary gallery on the Fleurieu.
Its success has been confirmed by the SA Great organisation and the Southern Alexandrina Business Association, who have both made special Awards to Artworx in recognition of the gallery's contribution to the local arts scene and local artists.
Displaying original art, jewellery, sculptures and gifts, Artworx Gallery and Gifts is located in the centre of Goolwa's heritage precinct, in an 1850s stone cottage and warehouse near the town's restaurants, hotels and historic wharf and railway station, where paddle steamers and steam trains rule.
Goolwa, an Aboriginal word meaning elbow, describes the bend in the River Murray where the town was settled in the mid-1800s, near the river's mouth and 15 km from Victor Harbor - one of South Australia's premier tourist towns.
Artworx Gallery and Gifts was created to fill a gap in the local arts scene and soon began attracting collectors from the region as well as from Adelaide and nationally.
Works can be shipped throughout Australia and overseas.
