Dedicated to exhibiting the works of emerging artists, the Top Gallery is an intimate exhibition space infused with heritage character. Facilities include removable window panels and a kitchenette. This gallery is part of Salamanca Art Centre’s subsidised Access Galleries program and is offered to emerging artists who are a Salamanca Arts Centre Associate Member on the acceptance of an exhibition proposal.
The Top Gallery nestles one level beneath the Terrapin puppet workshop in the very attic of the Salamanca Arts Centre at the top of the stairs. The rough-cast, limewashed stone walls, exposed beams and wooden flooring offer a counter-point in form and texture to many types of work.
Salamanca Arts Centre has a program for the Top Gallery that supports emerging artists with each month showcasing the work of a different emerging artist.
