Current Exhibitions

Behind the skull and in the foreground, more dark, wavy, reed-like strands hang from above.

Foresight & Fiction

Hannan Jones

20 April – 2 June 2024

Foresight & Fiction encourages us to see possibilities beyond our immediate reality. Here, postage stamps are a vehicle to explore the in-between. Using philately as a way to re-imagine collective narratives and psycho-geographical aspects of landscapes, both physical and emotional. Detouring away from stagnant ideas of nationhood and territory, Foresight & Fiction opens up ways of exploring the periphery, the imagined, and the possible, moving towards notions of hybridity in cultural heritage.

A love letter to the Nightingale

Elham Eshraghian-Haakansson

20 April – 2 June 2024

a love letter to the Nightingale is a multisensory poem exploring the fragility and elusiveness of place and experience, capturing the poignancy of memory and association integral to the understanding of loss or displacement. Through fragmented and poetic imagery, the artist highlights the paradox of survival and healing, inviting a critical discussion surrounding empathy, trust, custodianship, compassion, and social change. The artist engaged in an extensive period of reflective and collaborative practice with the community to create this body of work.

Goolugatup Heathcote Gallery is now accepting exhibition Expressions of Interest year-round.
We welcome EOIs from solo artists, artist groups, curators, touring shows and institutions. We present both emerging and established artists. Artist fees are awarded to exhibitors. Generally, we schedule exhibitions one year in advance.

EOIs can be submitted by a quick online form, below. The form involves a project description and uploading images. All applications are considered by a selection panel against specified criteria.
We assess apps once yearly, in early June. If we think your proposal is a good fit for the program, we will be in contact.
