WAG has a number of exhibition spaces and when not being used for one of our planned curated shows we like to give the opportunity to other artists or patrons to lease and utilise them. Any enquires about exhibiting in the main gallery space downstairs need to be made directly to the manager on +61 7 38915551 during business hours or via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Suitable* for private functions and single or group exhibitions, the spaces are open during normal gallery hours with a number of custom options to suit your event. WAG is open Tuesday - Friday, 10am - 5pm & Saturday 10am-3pm.
For opening nights the gallery bar is licensed to sell alcohol.
Due to current COVID-19 restrictions of 1 person per 4sqm we need to limit the number of people per area. Each of the larges areas can safely accomodate 10 people at a time, with physical distancing.
All pricing determined on a case-by-case basis.
General exhibitions for wag.gallery (upstairs) are AU$990(including GST) per week**.
A refundable bond of AU$500 is also required. This primarily secures the exhibition dates but also covers any damage to the space.
During opening night it is highly recommended that the artist/s deals with customer purchases directly. There are devices and services that allow you to easily and quickly process payments on opening night, we recommend Paypal or Square. During the period of the exhibition, gallery staff can collect and pass on customer details.
As this is a simple lease arrangement, the gallery does not take any further commission from sales.
