The Janbal Gallery is Aboriginal owned and operated and exclusively exhibits Aboriginal art. Located in Mossman in far north Queensland, visitors can get ‘hands on’ with workshop and storytelling classes helping them better understand Aboriginal art.
Displaying authentic Aboriginal arts and crafts, Janbal Gallery explores the reef and rainforest culture of the local Kuku Yalanji people through its art.
Open for art classes, painting workshops, and gallery sales during the week, a regular art workshop includes an hour-long canvas or boomerang experience. With options to personalise tours, Janbal Gallery can create classes to suit any age, interest or experience level.
There is also the opportunity to meet the resident artist and understand cultural and artistic learnings and themes, something that is thoroughly enjoyed by locals, and international visitors alike.
Brian ‘Binna’ Swindley, Janbal Gallery’s owner and an artist himself, will welcome you into his space to enjoy and share a true Aboriginal experience you won’t forget.
