Artist, Anthony Jackman at the Phee Theatre Foyer
Applications open 12.00pm, 30 May 2024

Council is calling for expressions of interest for local artists, groups, and arts organisations to exhibit their artwork in the Phee Broadway Theatre Foyer, for display from July 2024 to June 2025. 

This program is designed to build artists skills in developing exhibitions. It provides opportunities for locally connected emerging artists, curators and artist groups to display a small art exhibition in a prominent venue without paying hire fees, and with access to support and advice from Council officers. 

We welcome applications from exhibitors who can demonstrate a committed arts practice, and who seek to explore a concept that is relevant to the community. The Phee Broadway Theatre Foyer is only suited to two-dimensional work.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do all applications get accepted?

Submitting an application does not guarantee participation in the 2024 - 2025 Foyer Exhibition Program.

How long will exhibitions be?

Each exhibition is generally allocated around eight weeks, though requests are considered for shorter or longer periods.

Is there supervision of the foyer space?

The foyer of the Castlemaine Phee Broadway Theatre is not staffed or supervised so all artwork is exhibited at the artists' or organisations’ own risk.  

 

Commissions and sales

Artists may list exhibited works for sale, provided that artworks remain on display for the duration of the exhibition. Each exhibition should include a list of works with contact details for sales enquiries. Council does not manage artwork sales in this space.  

 

Launches and other events associated with the exhibition

If you wish to have any associated events to support the exhibition, such as an artist talk or opening, please make this proposal at the point of submitting the EOI.

Any associated activities will ideally occur on a Thursday evening before 8.00pm, and will be confirmed with the applicant if successful. Use of the foyer floor space for exhibition launches, artist talks or readings must be booked and confirmed prior to any promotional material being distributed.
