The City of Swan's favourite arts and culture venue, the Midland Junction Arts Centre (MJAC) offers an annual feast of visual, performing and youth arts for visitors and residents to join in!  Hosting two annual art exhibitions a year, numerous community art exhibitions by local and visiting artists, a range of arts activities during winter, HYPER Vision youth art exhibition and Hyper festival HQ,  year round visual art workshops and numerous live music shows, MJAC  offers a program that is diverse, inclusive and exciting.

Located in beautiful surrounds in front of Juniper Gardens, the MJAC  is conveniently located next to a range of dining options and Midland Gate Shopping Centre on Great Eastern Highway, Midland.

The heritage listed, newly refurbished venue features three generous gallery spaces, an intimate 140 seat theatre/auditorium, a leafy courtyard as well as dance rehearsal and printmaking studios, specialist arts equipment, resident orchestra's sheet music collection, City art collection works, various storage spaces for current users.  

Looking very different today, the arts centre is a far cry from its humble beginnings as the Midland Junction Technical School in 1904. In 1909, the school extended its curriculum to include art classes - marking over 100 year's tradition of community involvement in art!  The building has also housed a TAFE, primary school, and most recently the Australian Opera Studio, before being leased from the Midland Redevelopment Authority by the City of Swan for creation of the arts centre.

The wide range of paintings is housed in a charming rustic, French Provincial style building that is sunlit. It has a back terrace, and a side courtyard that abuts a cycle path to the Swan River; a two minute walk away. The larger, main gallery of the three within the building, has a roof window that lets in natural light which is a bonus for solo exhibitions sometimes held there. However the main purpose of the gallery is to have an on-going diverse exhibition of the 40 plus artists it represents. This means that visitors will always find the building overflowing with paintings to view or buy. Many by well established artists whose names you will know! No need to wait for a specially advertised exhibition. Maureen Sylvia, water-colourist and owner has created a friendly, peaceful atmosphere where visitors can enjoy a complementary tea or coffee as they relax and view this wide range of beautiful paintings that reflect the wonderfully, diverse art to be found in West Australia. It is also a great place to meet other people who love to paint or talk art.

Monet Gallery of Fine Arts is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday 12 to 6 pm and Thursdays 10 to 4 pm. More information is available on the web-site www.monetgallery.net.au or by phoning the gallery on 08 9277 3685. Workshops and solo exhibitions are sometimes held during the year, and on weekends in July in particular, you will find five of Monet's regular artists painting on site for visitors' enjoyment. Monet also features an artist in the studio from time to time throughout the year, and art-linked poetry readings in spring. There is always a warm welcome as Maureen believes art is for everyone.

Stories on the Wall

Stories on the Wall uses art in a decorative way, and art that can be used as tables, chairs, and shelves! Furthermore, using recycled timber furniture helps reduce environmental impact by recycling and minimizing the use of synthetic materials!

  • Galleries:Painting,Furniture

  • Open Days:Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday

Description

Stories on the Wall is a result of a lifetime of experiences all combined with an artistic background, lifetime travels, and living in 3 different continents. A combination of different cultures creates richness and beauty in unique ways. This is a story which started with love. Bonnie coming from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, met her French husband, Paul, 35 years ago in Paris. Ever since then they have expanded their boundaries, and developed a harmony in a way of life which was always unique! Living in France contributed to their exclusive taste for quality, and individuality. Where America taught them how to go after a dream, and widen their horizons. And Australia where everything became united, finding a half way mark between the 2 countries, and discovering a culture of outdoor living, simplicity, and wellbeing. Paul directed a company with 35 French clothing shops and was keen on business, and Bonnie was on the other end, dreaming up paintings, putting together exhibitions and taking care of their 3 children in happy way.


With Australia in view, Paul opened 5 clothing shops and settled in Perth with his traveling family. Bonnie continued painting with new inspiration, and captured amazing beauty of her new country. Exhibitions were a part of her life, and one day had an opportunity to do a quick exhibition in the shop that is now called “Stories on the Wall”, in honor of the many stories held within each painting. The expo was only scheduled for a week or two, but the reactions were so strong, and welcoming that the shop was kept as a permanent gallery!


With the walls full of colours attracting passerby, the interior looked a little empty. It was then the furniture came about. Reclaimed timber furniture made out of old fishing boats from the tropical islands of Indonesia. Recycled, naturally weathered, unique colours, and original, the furniture is an artwork by itself. The gallery became complete, using art in a decorative way, and art that could be used as tables, chairs, and shelves! Furthermore, using recycled timber furniture helps reduce environmental impact by recycling and minimizing the use of synthetic materials!
