The Gallery was first developed in 1984 to accommodate local and touring exhibitions and provide space for visual arts workshops and events. In 1986, construction of 4 studio spaces adjacent to the main building lead to the decline of the Gallery as a working space. An integral part of the Gallery complex is the centre flat, which provides self-contained accommodation for an artist or arts personnel visiting Esperance. The gallery has a (B) Category classification. The space has controlled lighting and a stable relative temperature in a secure brick building with timber floor. Currently the Gallery is without temperature/humidity control. All external entries are bolted and deadlocked. All external windows are fitted with security screens and a monitored alarm system is installed.


The space is lit by track mounted wall washes and aureole track mounted beam spots and has UV screening on skylights and south facing gable window at 3m from floor.

9m x 18m / 162 square metre floor space
