Gallery

Our purpose-built centre boasts two art spaces; the Main Gallery and KSPACE Gallery.  

The Main Gallery has always featured work in a range of media, from painting and sculpture to photography, performance, installation, video and other electronic media arts. A diverse Exhibition Program of local, national and international works of significance in internally-curated and hosted exhibitions has projected GYRACC into the forefront as a must-see art and cultural experience.

KSPACE is a designated gallery space aiming to promote and nurture the artistic and cultural identities of the Katherine Region and its people through ‘spotlight’ style exhibitions. We encourage all emerging Indigenous and non-Indigenous creatives to maximise this rare opportunity to showcase their work in a highly respected gallery setting. We are passionate about this initiative and are excited to support local artists in striving for excellence in their chosen field.
