Gallery 139 is located in Newcastle, Australia.
We are an online gallery only, with obligation-free viewing available in our Hamilton studio


The gallery is owned and directed by Newcastle-based artist Ahn Wells with the intention to support, promote and engage the public with art.  She established the gallery to create a space that not only supports artists by providing a professional gallery in which to exhibit and sell their artwork, but also to produce exhibitions for audiences that challenge, explore and investigate contemporary ideas and concepts.


Gallery 139 is an independent art gallery. Opening in February of 2015 at 139A Beaumont St, Hamilton, an inner-city suburb of Newcastle, Australia. Featuring regularly changing gallery-curated, group and solo exhibitions by emerging and established Newcastle artists. In 2019, the gallery moved out of it’s Beaumont St location to present pop-up exhibition in Newcastle and Sydney.




“Art is to be looked art, enjoyed. I’m first about the looking. I don’t want people to feel pressured to buy when they come to an exhibition presented at Gallery 139, I want them first to see. If then they want to buy and start collecting art, then I’m excited to help them find what lights them up and makes them feel good to own.” Ahn says
