Anglesea Art Space is run by Surf Coast Shire Council and has been set up as a community art space. The space allows art practitioners to exhibit, perform, create and run workshops (proposals to be discussed with Coordinator).

The space is provided for three weeks, including three weekends, set up (BUMP IN) and dismantling (BUMP OUT).

We strive to support artists as much as possible to sell artworks, expand their networks, connect with other creative individuals and to widen their audiences.

Please Note: Where an artwork is related to First Nations Peoples or Culture and the artist is not Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, artists must demonstrate appropriate consultation with the applicable Registered Aboriginal Party (RAP), Traditional Owner consultant or First Nations organisation. Artworks that directly reference First Nations iconography, symbology or story will not be displayed without evidence of this permission.

The cost of the Anglesea Art Space is:

  • $135 rent per week inclusive of GST (or $405 for the exhibition period).

  • A deposit of 33% of the rental fee is payable upon acceptance of your exhibition. This deposit is not refundable should you cancel your exhibition within 60 days of the scheduled Bump In. 

  • The remainder of the rental fee will be invoiced by Council prior to Bump In and must be paid in full prior to installation.

Exhibiting artists are required to mind the Art Space for the duration of their show. The Coordinator works 12 hours per week (usually Tuesdays & Thursdays). You are not required to mind the Space when the Coordinator is working. The Coordinator will confirm the days artists are not required prior to the exhibition.

If an exhibiting artist is unable to fulfil their responsibility to mind the Art Space for any reason (e.g. isolating in relation to Covid, illness, an unexpected commitment), they must arrange for someone to voluntarily fill their shift or arrange to place a notice on the door informing the general public that the Art Space is closed due to unforeseen circumstances.

If closure is required, please notify the Anglesea Art  Space Coordinator.
