2017 exhibition slots available in Bowral regional gallery

We are a dynamic artists run gallery in regional NSW. With a focus on local artists we also accept exhibition proposals from artists, designers and makers who are keen to engage with our informed and articulate community who live nearby or visit to see our shows.

We are in Bowral, halfway between Canberra and Sydney, located in a small shopping arcade in the busiest section of town. Due to our location and reputation we have between 80-100x people a day through the space and more on the weekends when the town swells with visitors.

One half of the space is dedicated to local wines, beers and produce which brings in a slightly different audience that dovetails perfectly with the diverse exhibition offerings.

The exhibition space is a contiguous 9metres painted grey with hanging system, good even lighting and space to stand back to see the show as a whole.
