Central to the main street in Yandina, the Stevens Street Gallery is a treasure-filled art space and store, featuring breathtaking paintings and beautiful jewellery, gifts, homewares, all produced by Sunshine Coast artists. In fact, this social enterprise gallery is fast becoming the hot new destination for conversation, culture and creativity!

Gallery Managers, Toni Eggleston and Alicia Mireille, believe the Sunshine Coast has a rich, flourishing arts industry and they’re aiming to spotlight the region’s growing reputation as an arts hub. 

“Our region is positioned to become a leading arts destination but needs exposure and opportunities for artists to be seen; our vision is to support our community, local artists and creatives, so we’re making local art and bespoke items accessible and affordable for everyone,” Toni said.

Combining exclusive boutique appeal with a down-to-earth atmosphere, the gallery also offers innovative workshops such as Paint Your Partner, Beginner’s Watercolours and making resin jewellery, led by local artists offering a fun educational experience and the chance to take home their own unique creation. 

The gallery is seeking more local artists to join the art collective and display their work in the Stevens Street Gallery and across a network of sister galleries throughout the Coast. 

Toni said, “There are no rules about the kind of art on show and, unlike traditional galleries, the space also invites artists to work on site. 

“We’re interested to hear from other artists and artisans living locally, and we are open to any media, size, 2D or 3D works, jewellery/wearable art – we want to see everything people are making! 

“Yandina has been a hidden gem for mostly locals for a long time but it’s evolving rapidly as a friendly haven for creatives and art lovers and collectors to meet, mingle and share their passion,” Toni shared. 

“The concept of Friday open nights once a month is to welcome people to come and see, chat, and make an evening of discovering new finds, food and friends.”  

Open gallery nights are held in partnership with Belgian Bar Deco on the third Friday each month from 5pm to 9pm. The gallery is otherwise open at 2 Stevens Street, Yandina from: 10am to 4pm Wednesday – Friday, 9am to 2pm Saturday, 10am to 2pm Sunday.
