Kelly’s Garden


Once a carter’s backyard, an escaped convict’s hideaway and a drying room for apple juice filters, Kelly’s Garden is a striking venue that offers a unique urban heritage environment for contemporary sculptors and installation artists.

Kelly’s Garden is a courtyard enclosed by the three storey brick and stone walls of the old warehouses it once serviced. It is accessed via Kelly’s Lane off Salamanca Place, and has a large sliding gate with specially designed peepholes.

Kelly’s Garden has been restored to cater for a continuing program of large scale sculpture and installation works.


Kelly’s Garden Curated Projects

Kelly’s Garden Curated Projects is a curated series of installation projects by emerging and established artists presented by Salamanca Arts Centre since 2009.
