About the Gallery
Stala Contemporary is a contemporary art gallery located at 12 Cleaver Street, West Perth WA in the burgeoning artistic community known as The Pickle District. It is housed in one of the many hidden industrial warehouse spaces in the area that are increasingly being re-purposed as eclectic spaces for small business and creative projects.
Formerly a commercial glaziers warehouse, the gallery’s old timber trussed roof and high ceilings, white painted brickwork walls, roller door and sealed concrete floor proudly displaying the cracks and paint splatters of its industrial past make it a unique contemporary art gallery space.
Gallery Director Sherri Staltari has championed Australian contemporary artists since 2006. She was a co-director of her previous gallery emerge ART SPACE gallery at three locations across Perth from 2006 - 2016. She launched her new gallery Stala Contemporary in 2017 and is committed to presenting a range of diverse contemporary artists' work and exhibitions. Stala Contemporary is scheduled to open in its new fifth bricks-and-mortar gallery premises in the dynamic inner city Flower District precinct of West Leedervile in 2022.
