Brett Whiteley Studio

The final home and workplace of the late Australian artist Brett Whiteley is now a museum that holds rotating exhibits of Whiteley’s work shown on weekends as well as monthly events such as poetry readings and classical music performances. The upstairs is frozen in time: dipped brushes are ready to create their next masterpiece; reference books are opened to the last page Whiteley saw; vinyl records sit waiting to be played. All of this plus a wall of photos, graffiti, and quotes from contemporaries like Bob Dylan paints an intimate portrait of an artistic genius who died of a methadone overdose in 1992. Entrance and events are free, and you don’t need to book ahead. Just show up ready to be inspired.

An inspiring afternoon spent with Wendy Whiteley at the studio/home of her late husband and famed artist, Brett Whiteley. From her colorful life tales, it's no wonder Wendy was a muse for Brett's work. Now operated by the Art Gallery of Northwales, the Whiteley's studio is open to the public on weekends.
