arc yinnar

Gallery arc. High quality exhibitions are hosted every 2, 4 or 6 weeks in this large and elegant Gallery space which measures 20 x 7 metres. Each calendar year a mix of shows are hosted with an emphasis on the contemporary approach to art making and a wide range of media.

Small Gallery
The small gallery size is 415cm x 300cm and has an up to date hanging system.

Open Entry group shows are open to artists to exhibit at the minimal cost of $10 per artwork. Examples include the 'Members and Friends exhibition in Summer'; in 2010 we held 'COLOUR IT!' around the theme of using colour to express your emotions and moods. Annual exhibitions such as ‘CREATIVE WASTE’ and the ‘ARC WOMENS SHOW’

Exhibition proposals from individual artists and groups are welcome and we encourage you to plan 12 months ahead, contact the Gallery Coordinator with your idea and Exhibition guidelines are available from the arc office.  Solo and group shows attract payment of gallery hire for a minimum of 2 weeks with no commission on sales - if transactions are handled by the artist themselves.

Curated Exhibitions such as 'Prints from Gippsland, 2010' showcase a particular theme or media relevant to those artists invited to participate. Open hours with staff attending are 12 till 4pm Tuesday to Friday, 11 am till 3 pm on Saturdays.
