The policy of Arts Margaret River is to provide an exhibition space for the community, encouraging new and emerging local artists to show their work in a supportive environment. The Gallery Team provides mentoring to the artists, including all aspects of the exhibition from hanging, promotion and organising of the opening event. Previously represented artists have ranged in age from 20 to 70 years, all with different abilities and featuring various techniques and mediums.
The Foyer Gallery features a different exhibition monthly for the entire year ranging from emerging artists to fundraising events with art at the core.
Displaying artists pay a minimal commission of 15 per cent of sales to Art Margaret River to cover our costs. In return the artist receives promotion through our website, the Arts Hub Members data base and the monthly e-news Artitude. In addition, promotional editorial in the local papers can also be arranged.
The gallery itself comprises approximately 35 metres of hanging space which allows for a substantial number of works. As the gallery is housed in the Margaret River Cultural Centre, this space is viewed inadvertently by all users of the centre. Our artists benefit from this exposure as opening hours are daily 10-4pm, some evenings plus many weekends. It gives us great pleasure to know that children are also exposed to the artworks as the centre in frequented by many children for various school and dance activities.
