The bookshop includes a small gallery space featuring a changing kaleidoscope of local artist's work. 

Our Current Exhibitions.


Thursday Island born and raised artist, James Billy is now a local Annerley resident. He is from the Kulkalgal clan of Naghir (Mt Ernest) and Masig (Yorke Island), a very talented and diverse artisan. 

His current collection here at the bookshop focuses on saltwater fish and animals depicted within traditional designs - really stimulating artworks created using simplified lines, shapes and muted colors. 

(see examples above).



An Exciting and eclectic collection of work from various artists - all members of the local 'Art4Ages' Studio. 

The pieces are all so unique, vibrant and individual - it's impossible to do them justice with words....why not call in soon and see them for yourselves. 

(You might even find a bargain to take home!).

(see examples below)

All paintings on display are for sale and range from $25.00 to $400.00 with all monies going back to the artists.

We're looking for local Artists Work to exhibit Now !

Slam Poetry is a type of competition where people read their poems without props, costumes or music. We will also talk about our poems and offer support and performance opportunities, as well as feedback.
