Celebrating 28 Years – 1993-2021
Peace of Green Gallery is Maleny's longest-running gallery. First opening 1993, and now in 2021 we celebrate 27 years of continuous operation.
Starting with just seven members, the gallery has seen nearly 100 members pass through, most staying for several years. Owned and operated by its artist members, the gallery has become an iconic institution in Maleny. Every day one of the represented artists is on duty. We are there to serve our customers, and discuss the broad range of art for sale.
First opening in a small space next door to the Maple Street Co-op, it only took 6 months for interest in joining the Gallery to grow to the point where larger premises were needed. The antique space over the road became vacant and the group signed the lease, and moved in. Peace of Green is still in that space. At that point there were 17 artists.
Now with 20 active members, the Gallery is constantly evolving.
