Be part of this exciting fundraising exhibition!
While the future of the Art Space in Anglesea is still being decided by the Surf Coast Shire, the Surf Coast Art Space Committee of Management is embarking on a new project. They are scheduled to open a new not for profit gallery and local art shop at the Multi Art Centre
(The MAC) in Torquay in mid-2021, with a rich program of exhibitions.
But they need our help! They are a newly incorporated not for profit organisation who are also the volunteer committee that help run Surf Coast Art Space – so they do not generate any funds from the exhibitions. Artists are currently offered rent free and commission free exhibitions, and the Surf Coast Shire pays for the space and coordinator.
Operations at The MAC will be very different. The MAC has offered them the opportunity to run the renovated gallery and shop space but they will have to pay rent and utilities, insurance and all the running costs.
In preparation, the Management Committee for the new gallery is planning a fundraising exhibition. It is to be held at the Surf Coast Art Space in Anglesea from 16th – 26th April. The show will feature the work of local artists in any media.
Funds raised from the 30% commission on sales of work will go towards start up costs for running the space.
