Funaki Gallery has been recognised as a driving force in the promotion of contemporary jewellery in Australia since it was founded in 1995 by renowned artist and advocate for the field, Mari Funaki. Since 2010, the gallery has continued under the directorship of Katie Scott.
Funaki presents a vibrant program of exhibitions by some of the most highly regarded artists in the field, including renowned European, New Zealand and Australian makers. Each is selected on the basis of their unique and highly skilled approach: their work is known for its conceptual strength, technical rigor and refined sensibility. In addition to jewellery, the gallery features objects and works for the wall, and exhibitions by guest artists from other disciplines.
The gallery is located in a custom built gallery apartment at the top end of Flinders Lane. Designed by Workshop Architects, the gallery boasts a main exhibition space and a smaller project space, plus a retail salon where clients can explore work by our represented group of over 35 artists.
