About Backwoods Gallery

Since Backwoods Gallery opened in the back streets of Collingwood in 2010, we’ve played an integral role in the development and promotion of the once fledgling Australian street art scene; produced 80+ exhibitions, countless public arts projects, murals and publications while remaining fiercely independent and self funded; nurtured maverick artists into MONA celebrated and NGA collected artists to form a world-class family of talented, high profile and (occasionally) hard to access artists; and gained a global community of like-minded followers. 

Then and now, our focus is to assist artists connect with their community, without limitations.

HOW TO FIND US

Backwoods Gallery is located upstairs, in an alleyway, off a backstreet in Collingwood, Melbourne. The nature of our location sometimes makes us difficult to find first time around, unless of course it's an opening night and there are people spilling out on to Easey street.

25 Easey street, Collingwood is a shared warehouse space, so be sure not to enter the wrong way. The wrong way is via the curb side doorway labeled 25. The right way is via Paradise Alley, also known as Backwoods Alley, which you just can't miss if you're looking for it.

Once you enter Paradise Alley off Easey street, look toward the end of the alleyway and up - you'll see the big Backwoods Gallery sign hanging from the rooftop. Make your way to the end of the alley and up the black stairwell. See you there.
