Long Gallery

Principally a visual arts exhibition space, the famous Long Gallery
is the largest gallery space at Salamanca Arts Centre,
yet has an intimacy and warmth that is hard to beat.

Originally a store for whaling products, then filled with can-labelling machinery during the jam factory days, the Long Gallery has provided the backdrop to countless exhibitions, conventions, balls, auctions, recitals, workshops, product launches and live performances. It is located on Level 1 of the Centre.

An enigmatic venue where 180 year-old polished floor boards stretch for 30 metres past rows of oaken columns to limewashed sandstone walls. Licensed for 400 patrons and with French doors opening above Salamanca Place, the Long Gallery is always in high demand for exhibitions and Private Functions. Facilities include contemporary track lighting, demountable hanging panels, lift access, storage and limited tables and chairs. Once experienced, never forgotten.

Applying for the Long Gallery : PRIVATE FUNCTIONS : 2021

Salamanca Arts Centre (SAC) is currently seeking applications for PRIVATE FUNCTIONS* for inclusion in the 2021 Calendars for the Long Gallery AND the Founders Room.

*Private Functions include Weddings, Engagement Parties, Birthday Parties, Parties in general, Balls, Dinners, Conferences, and any other non-public non-arts events.

Please Note: As the Long Gallery operates primarily as a gallery space we can only accommodate a limited amount of Private Functions in the Long Gallery each year; there are no such limits on the Founders Room. It is very unlikely that the Long Gallery or the Founders Room will be available during major festival periods in 2021 (such as the Australian Wooden Boat Festival – February long weekend / Ten Days o the Island – March /  Dark Mofo – June / Festival of Voices – first half of July etc.)
