The Melbourne Street Gallery

In 1979 Jim Elder began a three year project of a specially appointed gallery in Melbourne Street, North Adelaide while still trading as J.G.Elder Antiques in Jerningham street.

The gallery was superbly constructed in the traditional manner featuring a Victorian blue stone facade and the extensive use of Huon pine throughout its interior. The galleries interior is based on traditional English Architecture but with a subtle Australian Influence.

The Gallery was completed in 1982 and was officially opened by Kim Bonython at Elder Fine Arts first exhibition of Australian paintings. The gallery was a major development at the time, and is considered one of the most elegant private galleries in Australia.
