WELCOME TO MONTSALVAT

Welcome to Montsalvat, where the life of art is lived and a fabled past meets a vibrant present. Montsalvat is Australia’s oldest continuously active artists’ community; a place where art in all its forms is made and taught, and art’s transformative power is celebrated in exhibitions, festivals, concerts, workshops and artists’ residencies. 

Montsalvat is also a place of welcome to all – old and young, committed and curious. Everyone is invited to find peace and pleasure in Montsalvat’s lovingly tended gardens, enjoy Montsalvat’s exhibitions, its restaurant and hospitality, and marvel at its complex of buildings that evoke a European past while exemplifying a very Australian trait of recycling and architectural inventiveness. 


 
ARTS COMMUNITY Our vibrant and diverse community is made up of the many participants in our arts program, as well as the 20 or more artists and artisans in studios onsite. The breadth of artists involved includes  visual artists, musicians, writers, poets, composers and artistans.
