About wag.gallery

WAG has a number of exhibition spaces and when not being used for one of our planned curated shows are made available to independent artists or patrons to lease and utilise them. The available spaces for lease are Galleries 2 (upstairs), 3, 4 & 5 (bar area), details below. 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 email@wag.com.au.

Suitable* for private functions, single or group exhibitions, installation and performance. The spaces are open during normal gallery hours, Tuesday - Friday, 10am - 5pm & Saturday 10am-3pm.

For opening events, the licensed gallery bar is open and staffed to service drinks. BYO is not permitted under our liquor permit.

A refundable bond of $500 is also required. This primarily secures the exhibition dates but also covers any damage to the space.

Other costs are mainly dependent on any extra marketing and how you intend to hold your opening night.

If artworks are for sale the gallery allows artists to deal 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.

All pricing determined on a case-by-case basis but primary lease prices are detailed further below.

As this is a simple lease arrangement, the gallery does not take any commission from sales.

Most gallery spaces include a hanging system and our experienced gallery staff will be on-hand to look after the show for it's duration.

For artists needing a studio space to prepare artworks for exhibition, here or elsewhere, then please check out WAG Studios.

For artwork photography, DL invite design and preparation for print, the gallery's in-house design studio (Harry's Collar) provides professional and affordable services for artists.

See the booking page for details.
