Bevan and Janet


An exciting new gallery opened in March 2012 in the popular coastal town of Point Lonsdale. Practising artists Bevan Shepherd and Janet Goldman were directors of Tussock Upstairs, a light filled space that overlooked the heads in Point Lonsdale’s busy tourist strip.

Situated upstairs at 89 Pt Lonsdale Rd., Pt Lonsdale, the gallery featured works by local and Melbourne artists.  Bevan and Janet continue to have a strong background in making and exhibiting their own art, with work held in Australian and overseas collections. Their plan to encourage group shows of small works including painting, photography and works on paper proved highly successful during the time the gallery was in operation.  Shows were monthly with Saturday afternoon openings. The gallery closed on March 22nd 2020. It is now commencing a new phase in that Tussock Gallery opened at 61 Point Lonsdale Road Point Lonsdale February 2021.

Tussock Gallery features continuous exhibition of the work of Bevan Shepherd, Janet Goldman and supported by works on show by Sue Cumming and a wide range of local artists.

An exciting new aspect of the gallery is that they offer an exciting range of high quality preloved clothing. This addition to the gallery has been widely supported by many locals and visitors to Point Lonsdale.
