MG_4328Salamanca Art Centre’s most intimate venue is encountered even before passing through the front doors. Commanding the best public location in Salamanca Place, Lightbox is a square metre of window space available to selected artists to install works that utilize the attributes of this special exhibition space. This gallery is part of our subsidised program and is offered to SAC Associate Members on the acceptance of an exhibition proposal.

The Lightbox is a window space beside the main entrance to the Salamanca Arts Centre on Salamanca Place and can be viewed by the public 24 hours a day.
