Foyer Spaces

We have two foyer spaces for hire, for which we like to call ‘micro-exhibitions’. These are available to rent for a month at a time, starting from just $110 including gst. Displaying your work in one of these spaces is a great way to have your first ever solo exhibition, and you are guaranteed your work will be seen by everyone who enters the building! Pop in and take a look. These spaces book up well in advance however, so we advise early booking.
