Gallery Hire - FAQs
Can anyone exhibit?
Yes, you do not have to be a member to exhibit. Bookings are subject to curatorial approval and the timetable.
What kind of works can I exhibit?
As the gallery is adjacent to a print workshop, preference is given to prints, works on paper and artist's books. However paintings and installations have been successfully exhibited. See the floor plan below for an indication of hanging space. The Firestation reserves the right to determine the suitability of all work for exhibition, so your proposal must include examples of your work.
Is there a hanging system?
Yes, for both framed and unframed works on paper. There are also display cases for books etc.
How many works can I exhibit?
Check the floor plan below for dimensions. Allow reasonable space between works. Double-hanging is not receommended. If you have additional works, the Print Workshop and the Community Arts room are also available to hang in, at no extra charge.
What does it cost?
Gallery hire is $450 per week, with a minimum hire period of 3 weeks. A commission of 20% plus any applicable credit card fees is charged on sales. See the contract for further details.
What if I need help with my show?
Our gallery coordinator will help guide you through the process, and may also help you hang your show if time permits. The Firestation will advertise your show in Art Almanac and other free listings, and promote your show to our database.
