The Ewart Gallery is housed within the Workshop Arts Centre. The Ewart Gallery, named in honour of the WAC’s founder Joy Ewart, was officially opened in 1996 by artist John Coburn. The purpose of the space is to encourage and stimulate interest in art in the local and wider community and to support and promote the work of emerging and established artists.
The Ewart Gallery is an integral part of the Workshop Arts Centre and holds external exhibitions in a wide range of styles and media as well as showcasing student and teacher work throughout the year.
The Ewart Gallery is home of the Ewart Art Prize. Each year the gallery hosts this art prize for our members. The members’ exhibition has always been a major event in the Ewart Gallery calendar and forms part of a strong tradition at the Workshop Arts Centre. In years past there were celebratory sit down dinners at the WAC to celebrate the members’ exhibitions.
Proposals to exhibit at the Ewart Gallery are accepted at the WAC. The Ewart Gallery has 30 running metres of hanging space with professional lighting and hanging systems. Over many years the WAC has supported arts in the community. Exhibiting at the Ewart Gallery is available at very reasonable rates.
