Spiral Gallery Co-Operative is an artist run space that aims to promote and support contemporary and innovative art practice through its frequently changing exhibitions. The gallery is a not-for-profit organisation, promoting established and emerging artists through an exhibition program which reflects a variety of media and styles. As well as solo shows, the gallery hosts community group shows and exhibitions by the spiral artists themselves.
Spiral Gallery space is divided into two galleries, the main space is Gallery 1 and the smaller space behind it is Gallery 2. When exhibitions by the Spiral co-operative are held in Gallery 1, the smaller Gallery 2 is available for hire for small exhibitions.
For most of the year Gallery 2 is used as the Gallery Shop. Here the co-operative artists endeavour to offer a broad range of quality, hand-crafted artwork including ceramics, glass, textiles, sculpture, paintings and prints.
Spiral Gallery has played a major role in the development of visual arts in the south coast region of NSW, giving artists the opportunity to sell their work and generate income. As well as local artists hiring Spiral Gallery for their shows, we also provide space for community groups, such as Tulgeen Disability Services Art in the Garage and the Valley Potters to have exhibitions.We are one of the longest running artist galleries in Australia, opening in Bega in January 1997. We currently have 25 members who together run the gallery and co-ordinate and curate the exhibition program. New members are always welcome, please email us to apply.
We run skills development projects in the community, providing workshops for local artists, teachers and schools students. These workshops have in the past culminated in exhibitions at Spiral Gallery, Bega Valley Regional Gallery and Megalo Print Workshop in Canberra.
