Since opening in 1975, Glen Eira City Council Gallery has established a leading profile within the public gallery sector in Melbourne.
Located on the ground floor of the historic Glen Eira Town Hall, access to the Gallery is gained through the portico on Glen Eira Road, Caulfield.
The Gallery plays an important role in contributing to a rich cultural life for Glen Eira residents and the wider community. Our Gallery program features curated survey and thematic exhibitions, including the works of established and emerging contemporary Australian artists and a series of dynamic public programs for children and adults.
In addition to this, we also manage the prestigious A.M.E Bale Art Award. School group visits to the Gallery are welcome upon prior arrangement with the Gallery Coordinator/Curator.
The Gallery is wheelchair accessible and there is accessible parking in Council's car park.
The health and wellbeing of our community and team is our top priority.
