Council’s Gallery features regular curated survey and thematic exhibitions, including the works of emerging contemporary Australian artists. In addition to this, the Gallery also manage the A.M.E Bale Art Award.
Significant exhibitions held in the Gallery include, Open Country: The Murrumbeena Boyds (2015), Louise Paramor: Emporium (2013), Stephen Haley: Somewhere About Now (2012), Robert Baines: A Visible Likeness (2011), Farrell and Parkin: Topography of a Collaborative Mind (2010) and Jane Burton: Eye of the Beholder (2009).
The Gallery is also a popular hire space for local artists and other groups. In addition to assuring an exhibition program rich in diversity and scope, the use of the Gallery as a hire space also provides a forum for local artists to show their work within a professionally equipped space at competitive rates. The floor-to-ceiling panels can be moved to divide the Gallery into a half or full gallery space.
School group visits to the Gallery are welcome upon prior arrangement with the Curator.
The collection has three main themes. The first theme is works by well-known artists such as Fred Williams, Arthur Boyd, Leonard French, Charles Blackman, Brett Whiteley and Ivan Durrant. The second is works by local artists including Julie Goodwin, Felix Tuszynski, Danuta Michalska and Erica McGilchrist. The third theme revolves around works which feature the City of Glen Eira as the subject matter.
