Good experience

Good experience, nice gallery. The art turns over pretty quickly, so that's nice! The cafe inside is okay, but limited drink options.

Lovely gallery, opposite the Mint run by Martin and Suzy Beaver. Regular changes to exhibitions and a super gift shop with high quality craft goods.

The exhibitions change regularly but the food is consistently good. The atmosphere is casual and the staff friendly.

Tucked out of the way on the Canberra subhurb of Deakin this small privately owned gallery has constantly revolving exhibitions. It has four modest gallery spaces all on one level with a small backyard where sculpture is displayed. It shows works from artists across Australia. If you are looking to take some well priced art by Australian artists home this... More

The art here was nice, a mix of sculpture, painting, glass etc. Worth the trip. The cafe was also very nice. Right near the Mint.

Beaver Galleries, owned by Martin and Suzie Beaver and founded by Martin's parents is simply the best commercial gallery in Canberra. Fresh exhibitions with regular changes, competitive pricing, excellent upper crust giftshop and a very good little restaurant make for a very pleasant interlude. Situated just opposite the Mint and with lots of parking.

We have bought several paintings and items of jewellery from this gallery over the last 40 years. It's enjoyable just to visit. As with any gallery, we do not like everything that is exhibited. However, there is always something that takes our fancy.

I was here for a reception that a friend hosted for a non-profit. Great catering by Word of Mouth and a perfect opportunity to explore the gallery. Some really amazing glassware -- but with pretty steep prices. Loved so many of the things in the gallery but many were outside what I would be willing to pay.

This galley not only displays paintings but also jewellery, ceramics, glass and timber pieces. Good if you're looking for an unusual gift.
