Community Exhibition Spaces

The Mornington Peninsula Shire provides community exhibition spaces where local artists can display their artworks at no cost.

Through this program we promote awareness and appreciation of our creatives as well as making these spaces more stimulating and engaging for the general public.

Individual and group exhibition applications are invited from local artists producing two-dimensional artworks. 

The Arts and Cultural Development team are currently working to develop additional community exhibition spaces across the Shire. If you have any ideas, feedback or suggestions please contact us at
