Aboriginal Art Centre – Baluk Arts is opening a summer pop-up shop in Rye on the Mornington Peninsula to promote and sell contemporary Aboriginal art. Baluk Arts is an Indigenous organisation representing Aboriginal artists from Frankston, the Mornington Peninsula and south east Melbourne.
Baluk artists are from diverse Aboriginal backgrounds from all over Australia and share their stories through artwork in many different mediums.
