The Community Exhibition Program at the Town Hall Gallery is devoted to talented local artists. The exhibition space is offered free of charge and includes professional curation, presentation, promotion and the opportunity for artwork to be sold on behalf of the artist.

Successful applicants benefit from curatorial advice, mentoring, career development and the opportunity to exhibit work to a broad audience. 

Applications are encouraged from:
•    local emerging artists
•    local unrepresented artists
•    school groups in Boroondara
•    students from local organisations
•    small arts organisations based in Boroondara
•    historical groups in Boroondara
•    libraries in Boroondara.

Past Community Exhibition Program participant Linda Judge says the program provides the confidence required to pursue life as an artist: 

As a local, unrepresented artist, I felt privileged to be given the space to show my work which traces my connection to community through my wardrobe. As well as friends and family, a large group of curious locals came to the opening, having heard of it through advertising from the Town Hall Gallery. I am passionate about community art spaces and value the designated community gallery space provided by Town Hall Gallery.” 

Apply for the Community Exhibition Program 

Applications are open until 30 June 2019
