Penangk is an Authentic Aboriginal Art business that focuses on sharing the stories depicted by Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander artist.

Our physical gallery was established in Geelong, Victoria in 2017, we can be found in the newly developed "Little Pakington" Courtyard at 112 Pakington Street, Geelong West. 

We would like to pay our respects and acknowledge the Wadawurrung people of the Kulin Nation, who are the traditional owners of the land where we live, work and play. We also pay our respects to their elders past, present and future.

We would also like to extend this acknowledgement to all the non Aboriginal elders past, present and future who have and continue to contribute in building our nation.
