LightSpace Gallery

As we move to a firm programme of exhibitions in the main gallery, LightSpace Gallery becomes our venue for smaller exhibitions, individual artist hires and solo shows. We are offering 12-day hires giving two weekends – Wednesday through Sunday of the following week – at $160 per day including GST.

Shared between two artists, $80 per day for about 10m of gallery wall each is a cost-effective opportunity for artists to exhibit a group of works.

Contact if you are interested in any of these dates.
