Art exhibitions and special events

Travel-Art-exhibition.jpg

The Ku-ring-gai Art Centre Gallery has an exciting program of exhibitions each year, featuring artworks by Art Centre students, tutors and independent artists. 

Everyone is welcome. Entry is free of charge.

Exhibitions open on the first Thursday evening from 5.30pm - 7.30pm. 

As of 2016, the Art Centre has a new exhibition schedule and layout. After conducting the same exhibition processes for a number of years, we feel that this new, re-vamped structure allows for a more vibrant, exciting and professional exhibition space.

Each show now has a theme and works that are submitted must represent that theme in some sense. Instead of the exhibitions being run in class groups, they will be themed around a central idea and will accept all mediums. This allows any Art Centre Student or Tutor to submit work to each show. Exhibition entries will be accepted via our entry forms (available at reception or online) and artworks will be chosen via pre-selection.

For more information see exhibition forms or talk to Art Centre staff.

Keep an eye on the gallery between exhibitions for exciting showcases and artist profiles.
