Art Space is a community-based gallery run by Surf Coast Shire Council at Kuarka Dorla (the Wadawurrung traditional name for Anglesea River – a place to catch mullet) in Wadawurrung Country.

The space is available to emerging and established artists of all disciplines (including visual art, performance, installation) to exhibit, work and experiment at a minimal cost.

We strive to support artists to develop professionally, sell artworks, connect with other creatives and widen their audiences.

Info for exhibitors

Artists must be available to mind the gallery during the advertised exhibition opening hours. The Art Space Coordinator may be able to assist 1-2 days each week depending on other commitments within their role.

Read the conditions of use

This is a community exhibition space, not a private gallery or retail shop.  All funds raised through rental costs and commissions go back into the Art Space program for the purchase of essential items, equipment and program development.

To provide as many opportunities as possible, artists who apply as an individual may be placed in a group exhibition with one or more other artists.

For more information or to discuss your application, please contact the Anglesea Art Space Coordinator, or pop into the Art Space on Thursdays.
