original. inclusive. inspired.

From painting to photography, mixed media to mosaic, fibre arts to sculpture, we stage an ambitious calendar of exhibitions for emerging and experienced artists to display their latest artworks.

The mix of solo, small group, themed and open community exhibitions offers variety within the exhibition programme which delights exhibiting artists and gallery patrons alike.

Exhibition opening nights are open to the public and offer a more personal glimpse into the exhibition, with many of the exhibiting artists on hand to share the creative inspiration behind their works.

Gallery entry is free of charge. All purchases support the ongoing programming & activities of our community arts centre and the livelihood of our local artists.

Check out our event calendar for upcoming exhibition opening nights, artist floor talks and other exhibition-related offerings. View our video gallery for a sampling of our previous exhibitions or our exhibition archive for links to our 2023 exhibitions.
