2018 Community Access Gallery 

The Artist Studios Exhibition Program 

Illawarra is home to a vibrant and active Artist community many of whom come to together in loose networks or formalised groups, collectives and associations.  These groups form important cultural hubs and conduits for artists living in this region and provide diverse artistic and professional development opportunities that help energise and activate people, places and spaces throughout the Illawarra.  

Wollongong Art Gallery has turned over the Community Access Gallery throughout 2018 to a number of these groups and provided them an opportunity to present the work and creative output of their members to the broader community in the Gallery's 40th Anniversary year.
