Gallery History Established in 1991, Gallery East was originally situated in Claremont and founded on a deep love of Japanese woodblock prints and the traditional arts of Asia, reflected in a policy of regular exhibitions celebrating the work of the great Ukiyo-e artists, as well as the sacred and secular arts of India, Laos, Sri Lanka, Tibet and China. Gallery East carries fine examples of original Japanese Ukiyo-e, including Shunga (erotic images) and contemporary Japanese prints.

In January 1998, Gallery East opened its new purpose built premises in North Fremantle, Western Australia. Designed by Bret M. White of Cox Howlett and Bailey Woodland, the gallery is a variation on the ‘white cube’, with foldaway doors to the northern wall opening onto a deck, and another smaller gallery space to the side.

Exhibitions were held monthly with a range of finely made craft objects and Asian antique pieces permanently displayed in the side gallery.

The Gallery closed its exhibition program at 94 Stirling Highway on 22 December 2012 and now is open by appointment only.
