About the Town Hall Gallery
Part of the restored Hawthorn Arts Centre, our Town Hall Gallery features a diverse range of contemporary and innovative exhibitions displayed over 3 unique spaces.
The exhibitions explore diverse mediums and themes relevant to Boroondara and the visual arts scene. These include exhibitions selected as part of our Community exhibition program, showcasing work by local Boroondara artists. You can find out more about these on our Community exhibitions page. Many of our past exhibitions are also available to view online, on our Online exhibitions page.
Exhibitions are also drawn from the Town Hall Gallery Collection of contemporary and historical art. The collection reflects Boroondara’s diverse community and features art by significant Australian artists who currently live or have lived or worked in the municipality. More information on this collection is available on our Town Hall Gallery Collection page.
The Town Hall Gallery hosts a range of public programs, including:
- hands-on workshops
- documentary screenings.
Town Hall Gallery is proudly part of the Public Galleries Association of Victoria.
