Modern and contemporary art with a focus on the conceptually driven and visually compelling, Fox Galleries is located in the heart of the Collingwood arts precinct.
The gallery has two spaces. 63 Wellington Street is for curated exhibitions of its represented artists on a monthly basis. It is open to the public during its weekly opening hours and exhibition openings. 67 Wellington Street is for the display of artworks being offered for private sale and serves as a showroom for paintings and sculptures that are being valued for insurance, probate and other purposes. This space is open by appointment only.
In-between these spaces, 65 Wellington Street is the Melbourne office of Michael Fox Arts Accountant & Valuer, which is a specialist accountancy firm and tax agent in the creative industries. Artworks from its collection, as well as artworks from the represented artists of Fox Galleries are displayed here, which is open by appointment only.
The gallery commenced operations in Brisbane in 1998 and developed a reputation for establishing the careers of artists through commissioning and publication activities, a tradition that continues today. In 2006 the gallery was put on hold when Michael Fox was appointed the Queensland Curator of Joel Fine Art. In 2008 Bonhams acquired Joel Fine Art and Michael relocated to Melbourne to provide advisory services to select clients. He completed his Master of Tax, Melbourne Law School at the University of Melbourne in 2015.
Fox Galleries reopened in 2016 in Melbourne with a focus on tightly curated exhibitions of artists with consistently excellent practice, showcasing both historical and current works. Since then, a core group of artists has worked with the gallery on its exhibition program, museum shows, art prizes, publications and public art projects. As the gallery has evolved, its activities have expanded to support its artists to reach the widest possible audience.
