Nestled amongst the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, surrounded by the beautiful Somerset country side, you’ll find the Old Church Gallery Moore.
Originally built in the early 20th century, the church has been transformed by gallery owners David Mackenzie and Deborah Johnston-Booker, into a beautiful contemporary art space, retaining the buildings character and providing guests the opportunity to view art, photography and enjoy homemade, farm fresh goodies from the cafe on the undercover deck.
This beautiful traditional wooden building operated as a Catholic church for over 80 years before it was turned over to private ownership. The current owners purchased the property in 1998 with the dream of eventually creating a special art space to share. The original timber floorboards have been saved and used in the restoration of the building, the perfect complement to the buildings heritage.
SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST AN ART GALLERY
Not only do The Old Church Gallery Moore offer local and national art exhibitions, the Old Church Gallery Moore is also home to the incredible Mackenzie Fabrics, a unique textile collection featuring prints from photographer David Mackenzie, of the Australian bush on fabrics suitable for upholstery, cushions, lampshades, curtains and much more. The gallery also features paintings, photography, ceramics, sculpture, handmade jewellery and beautifully crafted woodwork. If you’re looking to treat yourself or trying to find the right gift for that special somebody, you’ll definitely be able to find it here.
Established photographer and owner David Mackenzie has recently had an article and photographs published in Outdoor Photographer Magazine (January edition) which is a USA based photography magazine. The magazine focuses on wildlife and landscape photography with a particular emphasis on conservation. Published photos are currently on sale in the gallery!
