The Bassett Gallery is a welcome addition to the Yarraville artistic scene. Yarraville has long been recognised as a lively village to visit with many shops and cafes to visit and relax. The Bassett Gallery is not located in the shopping Village but in the heart of the tree lined residential area at 14 Wembley Avenue, Yarraville
