Holmes à Court Gallery at Vasse Felix

The Holmes à Court Gallery is located at Vasse Felix, Cowaramup, near Margaret River in the State’s south-west. It’s changing programme includes events of national and international interest, developed through cultural, academic and business relationships. These events provide opportunities for conversation, discussions and debate about art and Australian culture, and support the gallery’s contribution to the community.

The Holmes à Court Collection, started in the early 1960s, grew from the family’s interest in Australian and Indigenous art. It has steadily developed over time into an internationally renowned collection that documents many areas of Australian cultural significance. This background has provided the focus for what is an eclectic and very personal collection. A core philosophy has been to look at artists and their works in terms of the connections and relationships that can be formed when developing exhibitions, rather than a chronological or historical recording of Australian art history.

Today the Collection, what is now the Janet Holmes à Court Collection, consists of more than 5,000 registered artworks and continues to be an important collection of Australian and Western Australian art, with a strong emphasis on Indigenous works.

Located on the corner of Tom Cullity Dr & Caves Rd, Cowaramup.
