The gallery at Artisans of Australia is bookable for you to curate your own exhibition of work.
Ideally positioned for good public visibility, with plenty of free parking and access to public transport nearby, the gallery is within easy walking distance of cafes, shops and the centre of Drysdale, Victoria.
The gallery offers an affordable and professional option for your next exhibition. The space may be hired by artisans in residence or members of the public, subject to availability and conditions.
We do not take a commission for works sold, instead we operate on a fixed cost basis - $500/wk with a minimum rental period of two weeks. This price includes: EFTPOS facilities (small processing fee applies at the end of the booking to cover bank transaction costs), a professional gallery hanging system, around 30 linear metres of 2.8m tall wall hanging space (alternative layout and shelving options are available if required), and advertising on the Artisans of Australia website, social media platforms and newsletter. The whole area houses feature lighting and a warm and inviting atmosphere, enhancing the viewing experience for all visitors. There is street level accessible access to the whole space through the large bi-fold glass doors.
Applications for solo and group exhibitions considered. Suitable for emerging and established artists who require minimal assistance. Exhibitors are responsible for all exhibition promotion other than through Artisans of Australia portals, organising opening night, staffing the exhibition space during opening hours and the removal of artworks at the close of show. We may be able to assist with staff to sit the space (minimum 3 hours) at an hourly rate or for the duration of the exhibition by prior arrangement (in addition to the rental fee), please include this in your booking request.
A deposit of 30% is payable on receipt of invoice, this non-refundable deposit will confirm your exclusive booking. A further 30% is payable two months prior to exhibition with the final balance due two weeks before rental start date.
Artisans of Australia is covered for public liability but insurance for artworks is the responsibility of the artist.
