about us

Vernissage is a contemporary art gallery in Prahran showing emerging and established artists.

At Vernissage we believe in art as life. It is a journey, it breathes, it moves. It moves us. It demands a response. Art inspires us and asks questions of us. For those who live with art, it shapes our daily experiences and offers a backdrop to our lives. To bring this inspiration to the homes or projects of our customers is a true privilege. To work together to find the perfect work is our inspiration.

Whether a professional designer or buying for your own home, Vernissage offers the experience, service and value for money to find the perfect piece, time and time again. Vernissage provides an artist-centred platform for emerging Australian and international artists, delivering engaging and unique contemporary work to the market at an accessible price-point.

Talk to us about an obligation-free showing of artworks in your home, as well as our out-on-consignment terms, whereby you can spend a weekend with an artwork in your space before making a final decision.

What does Vernissage mean?

Originally a French word meaning ‘varnishing’. It is a term used for a preview to an exhibition, traditionally for the elite buyers and art critics to have an exclusive viewing of a collection of works ahead of the general public.
