EXHIBIT WITH US
Exhibition proposals are welcome year round and bookings are subject to availability and an assessment process. Exhibitions are generally scheduled for a period of 6-8 weeks. The Banana Shire Regional Art Gallery predominately displays local and Central Queensland artists and encourages exhibitions by both established and emerging artists, as well as group exhibitions. The galley is generally booked up to 2 years in advance, we recommend contacting us in the initial stages of your planning to secure a space.
The gallery has two exhibition spaces:
MAIN GALLERY: suitable for large exhibitions, group displays and large works
PALM TREE ROOM: suitable for smaller exhibitions, emerging artists
For large shows both spaces can be booked at once.
Contact us to enquire about exhibition bookings.
