Wanna curate a show? Need a co-working space?

What a coincidence, Melbourne Arts Club can help you with both these things!

We're always open to hearing proposals for shows to be held in our gallery, so if you've got a collection of work together and you wanna show it off, or possibly fancy curating an exhibition made up of work by a bunch of artists, then head here for more info.

Oh! Maybe you're weary of working from home? Netflix proving too big a distraction? Luckily we've got a couple of spaces in our shared workspace for someone rad who is perhaps looking for a place to work on writing the great Australian novel/creating some visual art magic/bashing away at a keyboard on web related stuff/conquering a particularly hard Candy Crush level. Does anyone even play Candy Crush anymore? WHATEVER, not the point! The point is, we have desks available at super reasonable rates - find out more here.

Melbourne Arts Club Shop

Melbourne Arts Club Gallery and Studio now has a SHOP! Looking for the perfect gift for that special someone? Or need something to fill that gap on your wall? Check out our shop catalogue here or just pop in and say hello.
