The Gallery @ Bayside Arts & Cultural Centre
Bayside has long been associated with the arts and has a rich cultural heritage. Artists including Martin Boyd, Alan Marshall, Clarice Beckett, Guy Boyd, Septimus Power, Margaret Baskerville, and Charles Douglas Richardson have all drawn inspirations from living in Bayside.
The Gallery @ BACC, located in the Brighton Town Hall, presents a series of high quality temporary exhibitions, public programs and visual arts events, in both conventional and new media. Supporting the work of local Bayside artists and arts organisations, as well as giving visitors the opportunity to engage with important work by non-local significant and established practitioners, The Gallery provides a space for people to engage with art at all levels.
The Bayside City Council has an extensive Art and Heritage Collection with over 1,000 items including paintings, works on paper, ceramics, glass, textiles, mosaics, furniture and sculpture. Artworks and heritage objects are displayed at The Gallery @ Bayside Arts and Cultural Centre, the Council's Corporate Centre and heritage buildings such as Billilla and Black Rock House.
