About the Henderson Gallery

The Henderson Gallery is an independently run gallery with a mission to educate, develop, promote and advocate local artists and provide a voice for those who normally have no way to express themselves. Many artists on exhibition are outsiders to the art world, but through the Henderson Galley, find a market. Many of the artists have attracted attention from investors.

The gallery is more than just an exhibition hall, there is also a cafe and classroom space. People come here to be part of a local artistic community.

About Robert Henderson

Robert Henderson Wiradjuri came late to the artistic scene but has been prolific and creative in his output. For him, painting has become a means of expression and a compulsion to say something original and poignant. Robert's works are varied in nature and when discussing his works with people attending his exhibitions, I always find a great deal of difference between people about what they consider to be their favourite work. This is because every painting says something and there is always an opportunity for the viewer to find one that speaks to them.

About Wayne Weaver

Wayne Weaver enjoyed an international reputation before taking a hiatus that lasted 20 years. He has been an active participant in The Henderson Gallery since its inception. Now he is back as an artist with all new works.

Birrang Coffee

Birrang Coffee is a lovely little cafe out the front of the gallery and also essentially part of the extended gallery space filled with artworks overflowing from the exhibition area.
