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 or $12.50 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 include the ‘ARC WOMEN'S 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 'My Big Backyard: Reflections on Landscape', 2017 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.

Flourish Oct 21 - Nov 18

    Solo Exhibition by Caroline Graley

Flourish is an investigation into the lyricism of feminine spacial forms and line. Through an intuitive dance practice Caroline initiated a two handed drawing process as means to psychological and physiological integration, to achieve balance and wholeness.

Flourish is a collection of installation works which map an intimate engagement between body, emotion and subjective sensorial elaborations of space. These expressive abstractions are a feminine response to form and line. The works comprise pastel drawings, aluminium and wire sculpture and spacial installation.
Official opening at 2pm on Sat 21 Oct and an Artist Talk with Caroline at 2pm on Sun 22 Oct.
