Welcome.

Are you looking for a unique artwork or decorative object that is just the right fit for your home, that showcases your personality or interest?

We exhibit and sell locally made art, jewellery, woodwork, fashion, ceramics, curios and collectibles.

 

Iluka is a small town on the Clarence River with an exceptional depth of artistic talent. And, what stands us apart from the rest?

 

The gallery and store is run by the Artisans themselves, not a gallery owner. We know the art, the techniques and the local area.  

Come into the Iluka Emporium to say hello, we're keen to meet you.

Supporting Local Artists

Exhibition Spaces are available to rent on a monthly basis at Iluka Emporium. No commission taken on sales and you have the opportunity to host an Opening Event. Contact us for full details.

Feature Artist for the month of July 2024:
Photography with Steve Haynes

Stunning photography from our surrounding environment.

“I am 71 years old and started photography back in the early 70's when I bought my first real camera.

I then enrolled in a photography course. Learning lots about the camera and taking pictures. Starting in the beginners course, I progressed through to intermediate and then advanced. I also did mainly sports photography.  Prominently motor racing, circuit racing, off-road and speedway (bikes and sidecars).

But work got in the way and I didn't pick up a camera until about 2 years ago, when I got my first digital SLR.

 

So I had to teach myself all over again. So different from the old film cameras I am used to.

I am retired and use my photography as therapy. Helps get me out of bed as they say.”

On display at the Emporium for the month of July.

Exhibition & Opening July 2024:
Student works

Exhibiting works from workshop - Make and Mend Do with facilitator

Michelle Philip (Gecko's New Tail) funded by the NSW State Government under the

Stronger Country Communities Fund (SCCF)

The month of June has been a resounding success for those that took part in the workshop. Two groups have been getting reacquainted with their sewing skills and sharing their processes and techniques at Gecko’s New Tail studio. Various items were repaired in different ways from pockets & zips to cuffs & holes in jumpers to creating something from body measurements & drafting patterns.

Some trial runs made out of cotton sheets were then dyed with indigo dye in an active vat & also shirts and pants were revived using different shibori dyeing methods.

 

The participants in each group formed new friendships & rekindled old, gained confidence & connection. We will meet again to celebrate wearing our repaired clothing on the 28th of July at Iluka Emporium wearing the articles we made, mended or just Did!...  Please join us!

On display at the Emporium for the month of July.
