Overview

WE WILL BE CLOSED IN 2018 UNTIL THE 20TH OF FEBRUARY. Derby's Norval Gallery is run by a Kimberley artist husband and wife team Mark and Mary Norval. The gallery showcases their own insightful work as well as many other artists from the amazing Kimberley region of Western Australia. All of the artists are happy to talk about their unique artwork and are willing to share their painting techniques and ideas whilst being watched at work by visitors to the gallery. Other must see highlights of the gallery include Australia's best historical Boab Nut display, an extensive collection of the worlds rarest and most beautiful sea shells, a glittering selection of precious gemstones, locally designed Boab tree inspired jewellery and for the music buffs a trip down memory lane flicking through 5000 of the best LPs ever recorded. The Lonely Planet Australian travel guide for 2012 rated Norval Gallery as one of its top 60 "top choice must see" destinations Australia wide.
