“We fell in love with this unique gallery the moment we walked through the door in 2013 . An amazing show of local artwork and decorative pieces that simply takes your breath away. A true art gallery offering something very different . We’ve been UnderArt fans ever since.

– Graeme & Joyce, Taiwan

“I love, love, love my silver ring. It’s striking, edgy and bold, and never fails to get noticed. The more I wear it, the more character it develops. I’ve never seen anything like it before or since. Thank you.

– Mel Wicks Cairns

There’s a story behind everything I sell

I started UnderArt as a curious pursuit to see if I could run my own gallery and sell my artworks to total strangers.

UnderArt started as my personal dream, but it’s grown into something bigger. There’s a story behind everything I sell, because each piece is lovingly crafted by an artist who matters, and a sale is a salute to their passion. And in my book, that makes every customer a hero.


Art, jewellery, gifts. What else?

The biggest welcome and an ever-changing display of artworks. Personal art consultation services, and a gift register. Try-before-you-buy art ‘sleepovers’ and virtual displays. Gift wrapping and shipping throughout Australia and around the world. Most of all, an undying gratitude to all our loyal customers who have continually returned in person and online, sustaining us through the best and worst of times. Thank you!
